Metamorphosis

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!

Lovely. And the sentiment with it too. Maybe you will have to explore the idea of change and metamorphosis and butterflies a bit more.

Enjoy the day!

Love how you picked up the pendant colours with the pearls. I really need to get to Michaels to check out the IC line. That gradual transition of your mummy to be body is one of the most beautiful things you can experience. Will you be giving us tummy photos? I adore baby bellies!
