What was in my mailbox!!!

I got a real compliment from Duchess over at ArtBeads. She sent me an email asking me to join their blogging group to blog about their products and jewelry supplies. I was thrilled.

I was given a list of products and made my choice.

When I got home last nite, what was in my mail box???

Cue music!!!

I was so excited. I jumped up and down at the street and waved my box at cars as they went by. One person even honked at me. I do love being a kid.

I ripped open the packaging and there it was. One of the most beautiful beads I have ever seen.

Do you see this??

30x40mm Rectangle Black Onyx Matisse - Blue Nude

This is from the Artist Masterpiece Pendants collection at ArtBeads.

I keep picking it up and looking at it and not blogging about it. Put it down Tish, there is time to admire it later! The pictures do not do it justice. Hand painted and signed on black onyx, with a beautiful protective glossy finish. It is surprisingly light.

When I was given the list of items to choose from, and I saw this, the design instantly came into my head. I am going to go with the onyx, and add lapis and white jade. I have sterling plated chain coming. It will be a multi layered look. I can't wait to make it!!

Am gonna go get a drink of water, and dance around the house for a while. Wednesdays are great days for dancing!

Oh, and to tell you how much of a goof I am about certain things -my teeth are dry from smiling too much at this bead.


  1. how totally cool is that? love the matisse bead!

  2. Fabulous-ness abounds!! Wow!! I love seeing what different people choose when provided an opportunity to pick from a list of items. I think it says so much about a person, but also about where they are in that moment in time. Thanks so much for sharing and congrats on joining the blogging group! Can't wait to see what's next!! :)
