Glad Rag Swag Bag
Having received my second mailing of goodies from Rings & Things but being separated from both my cameras for reasons long and boring, I was at a loss to show you my loot. Then my brain woke up and I got these pix for you to look at!
Please go to A Bead a Day to see the full bounty of beads as they came to the mailbox of Lisa Crone. Oh, and her new book is out!!!! It looks wonderful and I am humbled to even have the same beads as Lisa! lol!
Here's an awesome close-up of some of the beads from Rings & Things:
'faceted helix sparkly glass beads'. Helix. "A helix (pl: helixes or helices) is a type of space curve, i.e. a smooth curve in three-dimensional space. It is characterised by the fact that the tangent line at any point makes a constant angle with a fixed line called the axis. Examples of helixes are coil springs and the handrails of spiral staircases." -Wikipedia
A space curve! So Tardis and Dr. Who! Seriously, you need to see these beads in real life! They are subtle yet happening! They are beyond faceted! To me, they whisper 'Vampire Steampunk'. Yes, I know, steampunk again. I have the most amazing thing to grace these beads with and then I will show you!
In the mean time, please do visit the blogs of the others playing with these beads, some of whom are listed in the sidebar on the right. My right.
Happy New Year! All the best for 2010! Keep sparkling!
