I've been in a beading mood since I came back from my mini vacation on Cape Cod. Maybe because I have more time to myself now that my mom is home and has round the clock care.

the glass beads look like coffee and vanilla ice cream cones. Since the beads are handmade it was hard to find two beads of each color that matched perfectly, and so I had to pick beads that the colors matched the closest. The ice cream cone beads are approximately 1 inch long. The earrings are pictured closeup, and so they look big.

I love blues, greens and turquoise and bought these beads to use as a gift, but I think I will be keeping these for myself. I find that I'm always buying beads in those colors. These beads were approximately the size of a nickel.
I still have the bead boxes out, and so with the predicted Hurricane coming tomorrow if we don't lose power I will spend the rainy/windy day beading. They are predicting a Category 1 hurricane with winds from 70 -80 miles per hour. I keep hoping the storm will change it's path and go out to sea. Those on the water will have to deal with 2 tides and strong surges with flooding. I pray that everyone in Irene's path stays safe.
