Holy Hot Tamales with Chilli Tomato Salsa Batman!
Got some oh so pretty lampwork baubles to show you today. This gorgeous set of 'Salsa' beads was made by the very talented Laura of Chestnut Ridge Designs on Etsy (the picture below is also Laura's...thanks Laura :o):
I love the colour combinations that Laura uses, and her groovy shapes and designs. So vibrant and beautiful!
I have made Laura's beads into a bracelet and earring set:
I need to go get my ears re-pierced at some point, so I can wear the earrings. Maybe once Thumper is a bit bigger though. That's why I let the holes close over in the first place...too many little sticky hands trying to rip my earrings out...OUCH!!
I am really scraping the bottom of my Sterling Silver collection at the moment. I should restock while the dollar is looking so healthy, but it is a bit pointless with us about to go away...so maybe another time (beads NOT being something I am considering taking on Lucey Blue....LOL, can you imagine hundreds of little crystal beads rolling about after a wave had knocked them all off the table...UGH!).
This set will be an especially appropriate one to wear around Christmas time dontcha think?! Particularly when it will be summer in Australia. Let's hope the summer of 2011/2012 is a real one though, as opposed to the pretend one that has just passed.
