It's a Dirty Job



I finished up three necklaces yesterday, and had Rick take pictures of my hands holding them. I love the contrasts; the dirt, the sparkle, the hard metal, the soft skin. These pieces are truly a labor of love, and as with so many things that are worth doing, it takes a lot of mess to uncover the beauty. I'm about ready to part with these, and will probably take "clean" pictures today, and post them in the BeadShop. But first, I really wanted you to see a bit of how these are born.

There is certainly nothing wrong with naming these new beautiful creations "Ice and Steel".

I suppose you do have to take "clean" photos.
But,I really love these! I think you could sell these photos. The contrast is wonderful!
Eye catching art pics that make a real statement !
Women work hard at life! But, they remember to take time to appreciate beauty !
