HAPPY BIRTHDAY THERESE!!!! I hope your day is as beautiful as you are and as colorful as the Golem beads you oh-so-generously gifted to me! Although I didn't get a chance to use all of my beads just yet, I did have a delightful time creating my very first beaded bezel for the gorgeous cabachon you pick out for me.
There were plenty of false starts and LOTS of work that needed to be ripped out, but eventually, I did it!
Thank you so much for your generosity and the opportunity to work with these beads in honor of your birthday. You're a rare gem, my friend, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to have met you. Not only are you inspiring me to be a better beader, but you're also inspiring me to be a better person. Love you my friend! xo
I am so looking forward to checking out the blogs of the other Birthday Surprise Challenge participants, but will be out of town for the weekend and unable to do so until Monday. =(
The good news though? I get to wear my new necklace!!! =)
