Lillies n Pearls

Found myself with two strands of gorgeous purply colour glass pearls and made up most of a necklace last night.Got up excited this morning and finished it off and did the earrings as well.
The lilly shapes are vintage and came from Etsy and white is a new thing for me,the pendant is a connector like the others with lillies wired into it,we'll see how that goes,and a ringing silver prayer ball on the end to make it "mine"though it was my idea and not a pattern.
The black velvet sofa was a xmas present,opens to be ajewellery box,well i have lots of that,lol,and is agreat prop for pics.It looks like it needs a Jamie Carrington 1930's doll on it with furs pearls and a leopard.

A New Year

I havent posted in ages as i havent been beading much.Summer in Australia is hard,the humidity just wipes me out and when its 30c at night its hard to sleep and hard to think in the day.
I am also in a strange headspace as i am about to turn 50 next month,and as i have been ill over half my life wonder were the time went,and how i will get through another year.
My last 2 female friends left me,one grew apart and the other dropped me hard out of nowhere with a "dearJulia" email which hurt like hell,i could understand if she was healthy and had a life but she was as ill as me,plus we had lots to talk about,it hurts.
I have been buying beads and have a couple of projects on the go,waiting for some delicas to arrive from the US,but feel flat,friendless and tired.
I bought a lotus pendant and will photograph it tomorrow,its very sweet and light and has swarovski tiny crystals added to it,lotus are my thing at the moment
I have a koala outside my room tonight grunting his head off very loudly,they make he wirdest noise but are almost impossible to get on camera.
