green green ...
In the Town of Islip, where Bay Shore is, we had an incredible amount of rain one day last week. 13 + inches in less than 6 hours. I've never seen it rain so hard. The streets became rivers and little gurgling brooks turned into raging torrents. Starting a block away, our neighborhood was evacuated, but miraculously, our basement didn't even flood. It was almost nice not being able to go anywhere, just sit around and play with my beads and wire, totally free of guilt. Why do I still feel guilty that I no longer have a nine-to-five job?
Anyway, I used my guilt-free time wisely and made a couple of new necklaces:
I thought I had used up all my lovely big faceted Prehnite beads, but I found a few more. Sometimes being disorganized is a good and useful thing. The little iridescent gray/green Czech beads are called "ghost beads" and are quite special. I should have bought more because they don't seem to be available any more.
