I love beads and I love books!
I know that sooo many of us have a weakness when it comes to collecting inspirational books. I have quite the collection myself. Most of them are are sitting neatly on a shelf less than 3 feet away from where I'm sitting. So much of what I have learned comes from books. I've snuggled up with many of them when It's just too yucky to go outside or I'm too tired to move or just when i want a little quiet time to myself. Allowing myself time with my books is a little bit of a ritual. I'll make myself a cup of tea or a latte in my favourite mug before plunking myself down in my favourite chair to read or just browse through a stack of books.
I'm not a beader, (i wish) but I am very attracted to a lot of it, especially the bead embroidery. That stuff is so yummy looking especially the cuff bracelets. I can't help but wonder what i could come up with using cabochons made with my CaBezel molds !!!!! Sadly, this will never happen, at least not if I have to do it. Beading and polymer cabochons are a match made in heaven no???
If anyone out there reading this does bead embroidery and has used cabochons from my molds I would absolutely love to see some pictures!!!
Now, back to this book. If you click here You can actually take a peek inside the book. Major eye candy. The cuff bracelets on page 9 are to die for. I think i'd just leave them on my coffee table all the time so that i could just look at them daily!!!
Here are a few of my books!!!
