A Blessed Happy Birthday to me!

I wanted to show you a lovely bracelet that my precious daughter/best friend made for my Birthday!!  Isn't it beautiful?  I love copper and this one is made with 4mm Firepolish and size 8's with a copper closure.  I love it!  On Thursday "the girls" went tubing down the Hootch then Melissa took me to my very favorite restuarant for lunch.  I am so glad to be able to celebrate one more year of blessings and family.  Thank you, sweet Melissa for being such a wonderful friend and daughter plus a good neighbor!  I love you so very much..... 
      I have been working on directions for this necklace.  I can not tell you how hard it is to write out directions, detail by detail, and make it understandable.  I am "stuck" on just explaining the rope let alone the details on the swags. 
This is one of three cuffs that I am working on......
Fun beading with Tila beads!  This is how I relax between projects.  Playing around with different patterns keeps my hands in the pot while learning new stitches can be so relaxing to me after a difficult day of making directions for a complicated design.
A Victorian necklace that I finished using Tila beads.This has been a wonderful year of ups and downs but I am so blessed to be healthy, eating too much, and life is good in Georgia.
Blessings to you ALL,
Sharon
