Recently I considered using these reddish beads, by Susan Kennedy of SueBeads, in my “mysterious pod” necklace. I ended up using other beads in that necklace. I’m really glad I did, because I am quite happy with how the  red beads turned out in the asymmetrical piece below:

I included several of my own PMC beads along with beach rock beads, ostrich egg shell, coconut shell, and small sterling silver beads.

I spent the day off island for the second time this week. Tomorrow will be a stormy day. I’m hoping to spend some of it in the studio and some of it catching up with friends who are visiting for the weekend.

Apropos of nothing: On the boat ride home this afternoon, the non human passengers included 1 bunny and 28,000 bees.

  3. I do love it – it turned out great! Can I feature it on my blog? :)

      Sure! I’m glad you liked how it turned out. I think I bought those beads last fall and I’ve just been waiting for the right time to use them. I’ll take a photo of the pod necklace when it’s finished. Your dark pod beads are perfect with the big pod!

    Beautiful necklace Barb. Who had the bees? What will they be pollinating?


    • Barb Fernald

      Hi Susan,
      Jasmine Samuel is keeping the bees. They’re honey bees, so they’ll be pollinating whatever they can find, I think. Did you know she’s cooking at Cranberry General? She’s a great cook!

        Yes, I heard about Jasmine. Everyone is really enjoying her meals. I’m looking forward to sampling this summer!
