Ode to Candie and Ode to Laurel

Candie Cooper might be the cutest thing ever. She's my girl-crush and Laurel and I are definitely ceritifiable stalkers.

So, when she had a kit for sale, I needed to own it. AND I loved it... All my favorites, silk cord, sliced druzy, tassel, and Swarovski bicones! Check it out!

She even included the feather and photograph! Isn't she the best! So here's my Ode to Candie... Who, by the way, we ALMOST kidnapped from Beadfest and brought her home...

 

My Ode to Laurel starts out with a tale of two radishes. Background: Laurel and I may be (also) slightly obsessed with Jade Scott pendants. Well we are. So there. We may have been going slightly crazy on some de-stashes and Laurel was grabbing them up so fast, she forgot what she already had. Hence, two radish charms. I kept teasing her about what was she gonna do with ONE radish, let alone TWO.!? So, she gifted me a radish. Charm, not a real radish, because you see I don't eat radishes or many (any) other vegetables. So now what am I going to do with a radish charm! Well I made it a mission at Beadfest to find some thing to do with the radish...

Here is my Ode to Laurel

I found a carrot by Joan Miller, a gourd by a new to me artist Louise Mchaffey, a clasp by C-Koop. The mushroom and Golems are from a destash. The donut glass beads are from last Beadfest and the rest, well there's this little place called Allegory Gallery. (As an aside: I don't eat any of the vegetables featured on this necklace. Yuck.)

  4. So so jelly for coupla reasons. 1. You got to attend a Beadfest and 2. You acquired destash Jade Scott. I have wanted one of Jade's sailboat pendants for forever. Never was quick enough or missed her Etsy updates because of work meetings. Candie's live events and random posts are bright spots in my days.
