PEACHES AND CREAM...

Ah, it's good to have friends...friends who are "purging"...friends like The Boss, who gifted me with a pair of sisters a few weeks back - porcelain cameos...one in green/rust, and this beauty!  Big girls, both - finished size is 2-3/4" X 2-1/4"  She's destined for a necklace but, since I have no more concerts on the agenda for this week, I needed something to write about now.
Large, "older than vintage" crystal rhinestones; Swarovski crystals; freshwater pearls; and Czech glass flowers, sitting amongst and atop a double row of delica ruffles (one grey, one brown iris)...backed with the funky zebra print Ultrasuede for that "kick" factor.
Our beautiful "fire sunsets" have come to an end, for the time being...I ran to the top of the hill last evening, in hopes of catching something spectacular.  Sadly, there were no clouds to be found (the clouds really reflect the colors), and showed nothing more than soft pinks, peaches and blues as I watched the sun fade.  It does go hand in hand with the peachy girl here so, until California's next misfortune.................

Ah, love Cameos! Your bead work amazes me. Such beauty. Keep it up!
We are in MO right now and I can see why you didn't care for living here. The weather is so sticky. Give me a Nevada evening's "dry heat" anytime!
Take care.
