|Key to Her Heart - Bead Embroidered Art Jewelry|
What I learned about Gen is that she's all heart. This woman maintains a positive attitude, is constantly supportive of her online and offline family AND she's a wonderful mother, grandmother and GREATgrandmother. Now that's some big shoes to fill Gen!
I wanted to make a special piece for Gen that she would be able to pass down to her daughter or granddaughter someday. What I designed is a work of bead embroidery art! I call it "Key to Her Heart." When I e-mailed Gen the photos, she e-mailed back in tears because this came at just the perfect moment for her. Gen needed a pick me up on a particularly difficult day and I'm so glad this necklace was the perfect solution.
Bead Embroidery as a style of design just resonates with me. I just love how each bead has it's own voice and how they all play together to create texture, color and send a message. The voice behind Gen's necklace said it was a vintage romantic at heart and indeed it was.
Hope your day is filled with beautiful things!
