Continuing with Kumihimo…..

Still having fun with Kumihimo. Here is a necklace that I made recently. It can be worn with or without a pendant. It feels so nice and gets a lot of comments!

Stone or Glass?

I love how these beads turned out looking like some kind of polished stone!  I call them ‘Cashmere

Map Beads

I wanted to share one of my all time favorite beads with you. It is one of a series of ‘map’ beads – this one is “Map of Graciella” and made it’s way to someone in France. I love to travel and enjoy creating new terrain on my little glass beads!

Bread – the Staff of Life

Now available at your local vending machine!!! Really?? If you live in Paris you will find these vending machines selling fresh baguettes allover. These are coin operated and dispense pre-cooked loaves of bread after warming them up for you once you complete your purchase. So do you think the invention of Jean-Louis Hecht signals the end of the daily trip to the bakery? Likened by some to the Redbox video kiosks in many groceries but hailed by others as a time saver it looks like business is up for these bread machines.
