Locks and Keys and a Monkey Too
I just finished six new brooches. I put 3 of them on my Etsy site this morning. Will add the other 3 tomorrow.
This is the first monkey I've ever done. I kinda like his cheekiness. I think he's trying to steal that lovely raku spiral bead that I got from Star Spirit Studio. And it looks like he also knicked a swarovski crystal with his tail!
I have a thing for keys. This one is surrounded with TINY little iridescent purple seed beads.
When my daughter was little, we flew to San Francisco and the flight attendant gave her a pair of little captain's wings. She wore them for weeks! This is my version. Ruby Zoisite center with brass verdi gris wings and wrapped up in my favorite blue-green seed beads. Yum.
You all know how I feel about pink (NOT my favorite color!) but many people love it, so in the spirit of offering something for everyone, I beaded up this cute little lock and key in precious pink.
...And here's another lock and key in blue.
...And one in Blood Red!
Here's a shot of my bead table this morning along with my beading muse, Arachne (cat), sleeping in her bed.
