Pottery Girl

I love beads and always have ever since I was a young girl. My mother's jewelry box was always a treasure trove to me, I always went right for her strand of amethyst beads, I loved their rich color, smoothness and clinking sound  the beads made. It is still one of my favorite sounds. Many years later those beads now rest in my jewelry box and every once in awhile I take them out and am reminded of my Mom.

When I purchase beads, I still have the little ritual, I jingle the beads in my hand, listen to their sound and feel their weight. Today the mail lady brought me a very anticipated package from Canada. Beautiful  hand formed ,handmade pottery beads from "Pottery Girl"... I was thrilled when I found these on Etsy and even more thrilled when I received them in the mail and held them in my hands. The colors and textures are wonderful, I can't wait to make something with them!

For those who do not know, I am having a "Love is all you need" Giveaway. Be sure to enter here, giveaway ends on Sept.7th.

 I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!
