Here's another of the Short One's abstract masterpieces. To be perfectly honest, I'm not exactly sure this is right side up - but don't tell the SO I said so.
Unfortunately, we are all a bit under the weather here. After a short fever earlier this week, the SO started developing a nasty cough Friday night and has passed on whatever ails him to both of us. 'Tis the season, eh? It's the only part of this time of year that I don't like (read previous post for things I do).
Still, even a bad cold shouldn't keep us from our beads, right? Here are your intriguing bead and jewelry links for the week:

I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
