We interrupt the regularly scheduled State Quarter to announce that a new state has joined the journal--NEVADA......
I didn't even think about the fact that I have been to a new state this year until I was fishing for loose change in the bottom of my purse and I pulled out the Nevada state quarter. With the inspiration still fresh in my mind, I knew exactly what I would bead. I know, I know, I promised myself I would pull a quarter from my little jar without prejudice and go with whatever came to mind, but really, I just had to break my own rule. This piece was just screaming to be made!
Although jetskiing on Lake Mohave in Nevada was one of (many) highlights of my trip, this magnet would not be about that. Oh no, it could only be about this:
The Chandelier Lounge in the Cosmopolitan resort in Vegas. I was (am) in love with this place.
Being inside was literally like sitting inside a 3-story chandelier. It was beyond amazing.
I don't know who came up with the design, but they should get an award. Patrick and I stopped in just for one drink, and wound up spending the whole evening there - only left when they told us they were closing for the night. I could have moved in and lived there.
I hunted my stash and pulled out all the crystal swarovski and clear beads I could find. I fringed
and draped my way around the circle.
Looking at this month's piece takes me right back to Vegas . . . . and wanting a margarita surrounded by crystals and the company of my favorite cousin. ~sigh~
