First of all, I would like to thank everyone for their well wishes and congrats! It really means a lot to me! I will certainly keep you updated as I go through my pregnancy, and am planning on making a scrapbook as well. I can't wait to take pictures and journal my thoughts. Since this blog is mostly about jewelry/my business, I do like to share little tidbits about my life from time to time. So, I plan to continue with that type of format.
I was able to get into the studio last night, even though I would have loved to have layed on the couch. But, I was excited to work with some new things I had gotten over the weekend. The above pendant is from the Industrial Chic line at Michael's. My Michael's has totally revamped their bead section and I am so happy about it! I had not seen this component, and several others, in the collection before. So I was happy to see that it seems like the IC line will stick around for a while. This is a little metal label holder that you might have seen on old library drawers. The "stock" image that came in it - the butterflies - I totally loved! I had no intentions of switching them out for a peacock feather which is shocking! I wire wrapped the two sides so that it would hang nicely from the strand of colorful pearls. I love how the colors blend into each other and gradually change, just like a butterfly. And just like my body over the next 7 months!
