    Did he bring back beads at least??? And, yes I’ve been on a bit of a tear lately, I’ve made 9 necklaces in the past week (4 in one day). :D

    He did not :(

    So – Is there a reason for this frenzy?

    CAS says:

    Just the creative juices flowing … :D :D

    You should start whispering in Larry’s ear at night … “Mystic = beads, Mystic = beads, Mystic = beads” … ;)

    Well, first I love purples! Second, I love this necklace and pendant! Third, I never would have thought to add the leopardskin jasper to it, yet it is a perfect addition! Great choices, Christine! :D

    Isn’t it funny how sometimes we bead in “spurts” or “tears”? Once those creative juices get flowing, look out!!! ;-)

    I think I’m spending too much time on here ~ I’ve started using the American spelling of “colour”! :)

    KPJEWELS says:

    Christine, I’m envious. I don’t think there’s any words in the dictionary to describe how gorgeous all of your pieces are. Fabulous. Starsparkle, when you spell using the “ou” instead of “o”, it is the Canadian way, eh. (or British, if you like)LOL
