They Got Me


They got me.
Over several years I watched and listened with interest
and great admiration at all the creations that came
forth from their studios.
I bought a few beads and trinkets here and there over the years,
but proudly maintained my single shelf of bead paraphernalia,
vowing never to start another hobby.
I occasionally produced a pair of earrings here and there,
a necklace for darling daughter, but nothing of note.

I don't know what happened.
I was invited to a a gathering of the evil bunch to create
that bird necklace remember that? It was fun and we ate after.


Shortly after that, there was a glass and bead show in town.
I attended, spent a considerable amount and we ate after.
It was loads of fun.



A couple nights ago, another impromptu gathering of the devils
and they worked on bracelets and I worked on these three.
We ate while we worked.
Now, understand these gals are true artisans, real designers,
their stuff is PHD level and I'm in pre-K.

BUT

They got me.

I also never showed you my finished bird necklace.
Not as involved as Heather's original design, or Jan's
version, but remember I'm a newbie
.

Now they're telling me about the great bead show in June.
They're evil I tell you, evil...but they've got me.
Sarah, Heather, Jan, Suzie, even you Tanya.
Lead me where you may, just be sure we
get to eat after.

Your necklace is beautiful.
You will be great at jewelry making, I love your style.

Heather said...

Suzan... I really think you've been a closet beader for a long time to produce such beautiful pieces so soon into your obsession. They're very gorgeous! The definition of a "newbie" just changed a little I think.

Your necklaces look wonderful. Don't sell yourself short, you are a true artist. I love everything you create.

Hope you have time to enjoy your garden this weekend.

Take care,

Kathleen

Muahahahahaha - welcome to the dark side! These ROCK! I don't think the term is Newbie in your case, but "Ringer"!

Had a horrible bout of Vertigo (Meniere's) the past two days, or I would have found these sooner. B-E-A-YOUUUUUUUUUUUUTIFUL!

OHHHHHH these are fabulous!!! If you are pre-k then I'm not sure what class I would fit into! I love them, you must look amazing wearing them around town! Theresa

Suzan they certainly did get you! I for one am glad they did too, so we could see this beautiful creation of yours. I really do love everything about it. I know you think it is pre-K, but I think it is PRIMO! It's beautiful!
