Wow! It is the most beautiful halloween day I think I have ever seen around here. Almost balmy, so great for the kids to have green grass and no frigid winds for their candy trek. On to the beadwork. Thank you to everyone for giving an opinion on the pond water. It turns out I did go with the majority. The clear turquoise won by a hair, it was close but it ultimately came down to the the mood I wanted to create and I felt the darker shades had a more watery pond feeling. If that makes any sense. The beadwork has been turned over to Robert and you can see he is working on making it into a bag. We decided on the camo leather. Also, a picture of my current project ( the dark underbelly of beadwork in honor of halloween ). Yes it is another lynx order, they are very popular this year. I remember when people were all about the wolves. Thank goodness fur doesn't intimidate me anymore.

Last piece of the puzzle on my "Our Lady of the Pond and her cat Bob" piece.  I went a little crazy. It started with the idea of a turtle dress, and then gold turtle earrings, a turtle head band and a swimming turtle. Fun to just relax with a no pressure/ not an order piece. So I need your opinions, what color should the pond water be? Do you like the pale blues on the left or the clear turquoise shades on the right?
