It's a Mirage... it's only beads! Mirage Beads that is, "the beads that change color as you wear them".

But before I could open my package from Rings & Things I had to quiet down a 100lb plus chocolate lab named "Jake"...our "step dog". Actually I have mentioned Jake before, he is our neighbors dog and we dog sit for him. It is kind of like having your own dog without all the costs. He likes to visit and eat all the cat food when he is here. Anyway, my foyer and great room have 20 foot ceilings so when Jake barks the whole world knows and it echos so loudly! Jake can hear the UPS man a mile away and was barking full throttle when he approached my house with my precious Rings & Things package,the UPS man dropped the package on my front stoop and literally ran away. Poor guy! I tried to convince Jake that the UPS guy only brings good things, but he still wanted him. It is pretty weird because Jake is the best dog ever and so lovable but he has this thing for the guy in the brown truck.

I had seen these beads in the catalog and they looked so intriguing. They are very lightweight and have so much color. This is what the card says about them:
"come alive with sensuous color as you wear them" (that alone sounds worth it!)
"Inspired by the mood jewelry of the '60s and '70s, these thermo-sensitive liquid crystal beads change color with the minute variations in temperature. Life like itself, Mirage Beads are always changing and mysterious. Although very durable please do not submerge in water."

So there you have it...something new and so cool! I can't wait to make myself a pair of earrings!


  1. Loving these beads...they are too cool. Can't wait to see what you do with them!

  2. I know this is about the beads, but I'm stuck on Jake. I love the image of the UPS guy dropping the package and running for his life! Truth is Jake would probably lick him to death. : ) The beads are very nice btw.

  3. Good dog! Enjoy the beads :)

  4. Aw, poor pup! My dog does the exact same thing-Our mail lady is SERIOUSLY scared of him.
    The UPS guy knows to just drop of the package and knock on the door or ring the door bell and runs off. Although I don't think it has anything to do with Jake(HA! I just realized our dogs have the same name) cause he seems to be always busy.
    Those beads are so awesome! I can't wait to see what you come up with :)
