Every once in a while, I get in the mood to visit the local thrift store. This time, I quickly spotted an amazing orange necklace and had to wait patiently while the clerk served another customer. My turn came and I finally had the chance to fondle my treasure. It simply had to be mine! Yes, it was a little more expensive than the others (if $7.99 is expensive), but I needed it! The beads appear to be made out of resin and are absolutely luminous! I plan to deconstruct and then resurrect it into something even more delicious. Imagine, if you will, all of that luminosity, draped gently against a crisp, black linen shirt. Yummm!!!!
The two other necklaces are lovely as well. One is made of stained wood beads in dark blues/purples and the other a navy blue mystery material (but probably glass). Both, welcome additions to my ever growing bead embroidery stash. My final purchase was a crisp, white cotton sheet for painting and monoprinting.
All in all a very successful hunt!
