In a Lightning Mood...

A lightning-quick post today as much of my day will be spent in travel and events away from home today! I'm taking this post today to show you a new creation that combines the newest Mood Bead design (Yup! Just like the Mood Rings of the 70's! Remember those?!) and some unusual stringing material!

What you see below is the "Sun Blossom" Mood Bead design dangling from hand-finished copper wire accompanied by metal, hematite and glass beads. The majority of the necklace, however, is from the trim and upholstery section at a national craft store chain! Isn't that fabulous?! I *love* creating with unusual materials and using them in unexpected ways!
This necklace is finished with eco-friendly, hand-finished brass. Notice the spiral clasp, which echos the spiral just below the Mood Bead. This has a steampunk, gypsy feel to it with the Mood Bead suspended in the center reminiscent of space age or exotic jewel.
The title is: The Personal Barometer of a Steampunk Gypsy

This is listed in my Etsy Shop, if you are interested!

I'll be at The Edge coffee shop in Saint Paul this evening. If your travels bring you anywhere near me, stop by for a chat!
See you Friday!
