Fetishes Can Be Dangerous

Especially when you drop everything else to fulfill your desires! 

I'm sure I'm not alone. I'm not the only one with crazy fetishes.  Here's my story: 

The mail came, an unexpected package was in the mail.  It was from my favorite lampwork artist Juliana Cannon - Studio Juls.  Hmmm, I could either wonder what was inside... nope, no time to wonder! I ripped open the package with the eagerness of a kid at the candy store. 

You know what I found? 

The most amazing, seriously lickable, lampwork glass cabochon that was screaming my name.  The color, the uniformity, the size, it's like we were a match made in heaven.  To me, I saw this cab and it spoke of ocean waves, sandy beaches, the romantic sounds of the sea. 

And Turquoise... so the fetish begins! 

Everything else got shoved right off the table so I could sit down and play. Like immediately...

The way this necklace came together was magical!  I have to thank Juls for giving me the privilege of playing with her glass and share it with you.  Here online store is loaded with brand new cabs, as well as her beads.  If you haven't used Juls lampwork before, you owe it to yourself to try it!  Each piece is perfection and I won't tell if you end up licking yours too! ;)

The aqua nuggets, crystal and copper accents are all from Cousin when I visited earlier this year.  I saw the nuggets in their warehouse and had.to.have.them!  Thank goodness I didn't need to wrestle anybody for them because you know who would have won... and I'm a lover, not a fighter. ♥

Have an amazing day, do something fun and make a difference in the world!

Hi Dawn,
Gorgeous necklace you make the best eye candy, but then when you have one of Juli's totally lickable cabs for inspiration it is not hard to make gorgeous wearable eye candy. I to got instant inspiration when I received Juli's cabs. You will be able to see what I made on the 26th.

First of all you can not go wrong with Jul's beads and cabs. Her art is truly some of the best. In you hands there is Magic. This is stunning. Glad you had so much fun creating.

I just loved this necklace. I have made many pins similar to this with shank buttons. I love my pins. I used some hearts, done in purple and pink, into necklaces for my granddaughters. They turned out so cute. I have never used a cabochan. I am going to your friend Juls site and check them out. Thanks for sharing.
