You know how sometimes an idea begins to form in your mind and you love it right from the beginning.....you love the idea, you love the design, you love the focal and accompanying beads you've picked, you love how it looks right from the first bead strung and oh you love the finished results.......that is Aurea! I purchased the turquoise from my favorite store in Victoria and although I have had it for quite a few months, now was the time to create something special. I am off to Victoria in a couple of weeks to see my beautiful sister (and of course I will go to my favorite store) and I wanted to wear my creation. I am not sure they will know this was the birthplace of my latest creation; maybe I will mention it or maybe not. I will buy another fabulous gem, of that I am sure and in the meantime I will have the greatest pleasure wearing this piece. I may be partial but I absolutely love this piece. I even named it after that store...Aurea.
Oh and spring has finally arrived in the north country and here is the living proof!
