Sunrise Surprise


About this design:

On my table for weeks... finally assembled it last night. Had no intention of sharing it until I saw Kat's All That - Tequila Sunrise earrings...(August 9th post) It was too much of a coincidence not to share.

Components:

Fun lampwork beads orange red, with orange and yellow swirly dots. Lima crystals, and Swarovski fire opal bicone crystals, Silver plated metal spacer beads and toggle. And some misc coordinating beads for the dangles.

    Thanks so much ladies! I appreciate your comments!It’s nice when things fall into place.

    Got some sad news yesterday my Brother is in the hospital…slated for surgery…perforated intestine and blood infection…He’s on antibiotics and they are waiting to get his vitals together. Hard to be in another State when these things occur. If you happen to read this perhaps you could say a prayer. Thanks Again.

    I am so sorry about your Brother. Both of you will be in my thoughts. I was hospitalized about 14 yrs ago, and while performing a diagnostic test, they perforated my intestine and had to do surgery to correct it. My family was not in the area either, and they all conveyed how hard it was to be so far away. May your heart and mind find peace during this difficult time. Here is a hug from me. BIG HUG
