I think they are in love

I wanted to show you what I've been busy working on in between custom orders.

This is my second attempt at beads for Valentines Day. At first I made my usual vintage postcard images, most of them didn't turn out and had to be scrapped. The few I did get finished went to the Bellevue Beadery and I was happy to part ways with them. I mentioned to Joanna, the owner, that I wanted to make something else but different this year...I have been admiring these images so I just ran with it.
They are a bit bigger than my regular work at one and a half inches tall. I think my motivation had a lot to do with the finished result, these all came out on the first scrapped pieces..that is a rarity. I need to remember to trust my instincts more and do what I like not just what sold before. Even if these don't thrill anyone else I'm really happy with them.
