'Creme Caramel' Focal

An ivory tapered bicone decorated with caramel-coloured stringerwork.

Well, I had a sad start to the day - Tamzin, one of my guinea pigs died during the night. She was seven years old which is quite an age for a guinea pig. Tamzin was chief lawnmower so now I expect Marlene will take over bossing Brenda and Edith about. We do get so attached to our pets, don't we?

Poor poor Guinea Pig, its so sad. We have or I should say had 2 Gerbils and 1 had to be put down, I'm sure the vet must have thought me completely mad, I sobbed.

This is a beautiful bead!

Aw. I'm sure vets totally understand. I've kept guinea pigs since I was about ten and it's always sad when one dies.

Thanks for the bead compliment, Mandie!

Hi laura sorry to hear your loss, i go in mourning for 2 weeks when my pets die, im so emotional anyway!

Love the beads..do u shape them by hand?

Laura said...

Thanks, Jo. :o)

Angie - yes, they're shaped by hand. Well, a graphite paddle anyway. No press or bicone-shaper-jobby-thing.

I like these antiquey focals, particularly the ivory & turquoise one sold yesterday. Sorry about your guinea pig - it's so awful when you lose a pet, no matter how small.
