"The Prancing Peacock!"

 The Prancing Peacock
I created a simple beaded necklace, done in a netting stitch, to this gorgeous genuine peacock feather focal piece. Using the irredescent colors of this unique bird, I duplicated the colors in both the necklace rope and the triangle that holds the feathers which are solidly attached to a felt backing. This is guaranteed to make a statement when you wear it! Find it in my: Etsy SHOP.   See you there!

Visiting Studio Friends

Friends from the Forest
Springtime brings out the best of the forest! New growth can be seen everywhere. The pond refills after a very dry winter. With the warmth of the rays, the dragonflies reappear hovering over the top of the water. Warmth grows the algae, a food product for the resident ducks and Canadian geese and the pond's fish life. Tadpoles a' plenty cover the areas close to the shore. When the temperatures remain warmer they will grow their legs and become frogs.
Our home is blessed especially with both of nature's creatures! When we leave the front door open they enter freely and spend the day with me in my studio!  The "ribets" of the frogs sounds like we have a bull frog in tow. Nope, it's only one of those brilliant, green thumb-size little guys but they have a voice that carries afar! Amazing! A handful live under my bedroom window and the racket  they bring to our neighborhood is unparalled.  It's a pond to bring these creatures into our lives. There is nothing like the peacefulness of beading and being blessed with the company of quiet dragonflies and singing frogs.
