Irish anyone

I've been thinking about Ireland today, prolly all the talk of St. Patty's day, but I didn't want to work with green and my mind wandered to Irish burial mounds, cairns I believe they are called.  I started making spacer beads in one color in various sizes and stacking them into cairn shapes.  I'm so happy with the potential.  I haven't baked the beads yet (tomorrow). I will definitely have an after photo.

I'm headed into spring break and am, so far, loving every minute of it.  I do have jury duty on March 17, so wish me luck for a short trial or none at all.  I'll post more over the week.  My goal is to get some items up at Etsy and maybe a little redesign of the shop.  I also have a major closet cleaning to do, cannot be put off any longer, egads.

Here is the cairn necklace, in progress.  Enjoy!

Peace and love everyone!!

Lovely as always, Elizabeth! What fascinating talent you have--to take one idea and create such an awesome and inspiring piece! I hope to see the finished product!

Good luck with the jury duty and I hope Spring Break is not too short! Ours start in two weeks!
