Sunshine and Cedars

I remember how devastated I was many years ago when I heard about John Denver's plane crash.  I truly loved than man's singing - still do.

The first bead is my tribute to him - "Sunshine", named after his song, Sunshine On My Shoulders.  The second bead is a new take on one of my Misty Cedars beads, this time framed in a window.  I am really pleased with this new direction my beads are taking, and will be re-visiting a lot of my old styles to see if they look good "framed" too.

I did make one of my ocean style beads in this framed style, and it turned out really great - but a friend bought it before I could photograph it!  I'll do another this week.

These beads, along with several others can be found in my Etsy shop.
Have a great day!

you have increadable talent- love the colorful beads- they are so cheery.
I will keep you in my prayers as I hear (from Lori) that things are not good with your Mom and all. Your friends "got your back" and send hugs your way.
