Bead & Jewelry Linky Love
Here's the Short One's loot from our recent trip to New York City. As you can see, even Vikings like ice cream in our world. And, hey, isn't that Russ Nobbs of Rings & Things eating a sundae over there? Nah, couldn't be... (With apologies to Rings & Things, the little Russ Troll is now in the hands of the SO - I'm not entirely sure when I'll be getting him back.)
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. We went to see "Up!" on Saturday - it was the SO's very first movie experience. I never realized what a penetrating voice he had until he announced at a pivotal point in the film that he had to go potty. Clear as a bell, that voice.
On the beading front, I've been working on sketches for a major new piece. I may even break out the silver clay for the first time in weeks (sigh). Either way, I'll have some new jewelry designs later this week. In the meantime, here are your intriguing bead & jewelry links:
