Berries and jewelry

Esfera jewelry creating with berries

Berries, I love them. I love the color, I love the taste, I love them all. Sadly, I’m allergic to them, so if I eat too many, I start to look like an alien, with strange looking bumps all over my body. And these bumps itch. So best to leave them alone, I guess.

Creating with berries

That is, for eating. Not for playing with “berries”. I was so thrilled to see the latest Inspired design challenge from Lori Bergmann on her blog Living Life Creatively. Look at these colors!

I knew exactly what beads to take. In my stash are some gorgeous freshwater pearls, named “elderberry”. Combined with a beautiful lampie from Grace Lampwork Beads, some extra bling (a girl gotta have her bling) and Vintaj brass and voila…my berry bracelet was done.

Hi Claire

Thank you so much for your lovely compliment. I feel humbled by it, as you are such a great designer yourself.

Inspired Design challenge

Thanks so much for participating in my Inspired Design challenge, Janine! I am a sucker for anything with pearls and those are especially yummy looking! Love both of your designs and the little touches you added like the seed beads on the earring hoops. Good luck and thanks for sharing the inspiration! *Ü*
