It has been almost two weeks since I have been able to sit down and make beads. It feels much longer than that and I can't wait to work on some this weekend!! Hopefully I will get the opportunity to do that. Every time I think I will take a few hours to work, I end up getting side tracked and don't get around to it. I have a few sets that are incomplete and I want to get them taken care of so I can create the bracelet designs that keep running around in my head. Maybe, just maybe I will finally get to it!!!

A mother's touch is...irreplaceable. It can calm us down when things seem to be falling apart, mend our wounds, and make us feel safe and loved. Too often we take for granted the touch of a mother and don't REALLY cherish it until it is gone.
This bracelet was made for my mother. My father asked me to make a bracelet that he could give to her on their 47th wedding anniversary. A few months after he gave this to her she passed away due to cancer. Her touch will be missed!
I designed this bracelet with her in mind. Since she loved her garden and often wore beautiful pastel colors the lampwork beads were created in a rich, light yellow and a soft pink with flowers on a few of them. Mom only wore gold so I used 14 karat gold and a few vermeil pieces, crystals and freshwater pearls were also used to create this feminine bracelet.
