Here is a great photo of my mother and I. It's from Sam's graduation (I'm still feeling so happy about that event), but the real reason I wanted to put it on my blog is because it shows us wearing bead jewelry that I made, not just photos of the jewelry.
My mother is wearing a necklace that I made for Beading for a Cure 2010, which I actually beaded in 2009. On her wrist is a Wave Me Down bracelet by Shelley Nybakke, who designs wonderful right angle weave bracelets, among other things. The bracelet uses silver metal beads and 3mm turquoise AB 2x crystals. On my wrist is a right angle weave bracelet that is embellished with pearls and crystals. The bracelet matches the strand of pearls that Dennis gave me as a gift.
During the visit my mother also wore my Beading for a Cure 2011 bracelet and earrings. When I find the photo I will put it on the blog. I think it's fair to say that my mother is my biggest supporter and benefactor of my jewelry. Thanks Mom!
