Background Screens

I built some background screens for my computer.
Just messing around in Photoshop.

If you would like to use them please do.
But you know, don't sell them or claim them as your own.

It's pretty simple and lots of fun.
You should try building your own.
Just make 4 copies of the image, each copy in it's own layer. Then transform (flip) them and snug them up against each other until you have a pattern you like. Flatten and save. Viola.

Celeste Necklace

A simple necklace.

I love the Cim's new color 'Celeste.'
Not dissimilar from that work horse Effetre 'Pale Aqua' but there is no scum, it works like a dream and has a wonderful sparkle.

These simple beads are 'Celeste' with a small dot of hand-pulled emerald added.
Each one was rolled in a CGB ribbed donut bead roller and that's that.
It doesn't have to be complicated.

The whole necklace is put together with 18g sterling silver and a commercial sterling lobster clasp.

The lucky lady who got this one for Christmas is very happy.

Sorry I vanished from this beady blog for almost the whole month of December.
Ya know what?
I was kinda busy.
