Let Them Eat Cake

Tiered Wedding Cake Beads Focals

Debi Cogwell, aka The Palm Tree Queen, has done it again. Deb is one of my favorite lampwork artists for whimsical glass beads (not to mention an all-around great person - always a plus, in my books). I still have her fantastic hand holding a jack-0-lantern bead in my collection - I posted a pic of it on this blog back in 2007.

Well, this cute set of wedding cake beads came up on her website recently, and I just couldn't resist. I love cake beads generally, and I have a big collection of them. However, I'd never seen whole cake beads complete with beaded glass cake stands before. I think the attention to detail really makes these designs. (And believe it or not, they are substantially cuter in person. It's all I can do not to coo over them.)

I already have a design idea for one of these beads, and I'm sure more will follow.

For goodness sake, if you have a weakness for whimsical beads the way I do, please visit her website - you definitely won't be sorry.

Thanks for visiting!

Aren't they great? The funny thing is, the photo doesn't really show all of the incredible detail on the beads. I'm really smitten.

Love those! I have admired the ones that Cathi Milligan of Bead Brains has been making for years...

So cute!

I got hungry looking at her site. It's unbelievable.
I had to take a second look at the christmas light beads. I thought they were real at first.

Oh my gosh, before I read the words of the post, I thought, "I have never seen cake beads with the cake stand included"!! AMAZING details! I wish I had a wedding or birthday coming up to celebrate!! Thanks so much for sharing!
