recently I asked Amanda to make a pair of earrings, BUT she couldn't use her favorite colors of aqua, turquoise, greens and blues. "too many of those already" is what I said. such a meanie, huh!
she must have labored over this pair, and the next day when i came to work, i was like, "who made this?" this color combination with pink topaz, sunstone, and citrine was so out of her comfort zone, i would never have guessed who made it! I wore them today, and they are awesome!
what's the lesson of this story? that you can bead for a decade, and still have trouble finding 4 beads that go nicely together. the end!
