Creating Custom Beads
A recent project was to make a
to match these two scarves...
THE WONDERFUL STORY BEHIND
special project which is dear to my heart. My daughter is getting
married on May 5 this year. My very best friend is coming down here
(Florida) from Michigan - I have known her since we were 2 (we are now
52). When we were young, we used to play dress up. My father
traveled a lot and bought silk scarves in every state he visited and
brought them home to me. Beverly and I would dress up in these
scarves and dance to the Nutcracker, etc. Of course, we each had one
scarf that was our special scarf - mine was turquoise in color and
her's was chartreuse - the other scarves didn't matter who got what, but
those were each of our special ones. I would like to have some kind of
bead (I was looking at your beautiful hearts) made incorporating both of
these colors - I am attaching a picture of the two scarves so you can see
the colors. I would also like the bead in a finished form as a
necklace so she could wear it to the wedding (I want to give it to her at
the rehearsal dinner) - I don't have any brothers or sisters and we used
to call each other "sis" and she still calls me "sis"
so we are probably closer than most blood sisters - I was adopted and we
used to pretend that we were really sisters, but no one knew!
This Amazing Jacket
inspired Zelda Bailey
to create a wonderful necklace
to accompany it.
At her request I made several large beads for the customer's consideration as the focal
point, and Zelda worked her magic.......
It turned out great, didn't it?
