Guardian Beads

These are my Guardian Beads.

They are also known as "natasha" beads or an "inside out" bead. I call them guardians because sometimes I can see angels, animals or faces in them. They are like a Rorschach test and everyone sees something different in them.

They are scraps all mushed together, formed into a log and cut open to reveal the picture inside. When cut the right way and opened up the right way all of the sides and middles match up.

Kind of fun and addictive to make because you never know what you are going to get.

Cloudy Day

My computer caught a nasty cold! I have had it in the repair shop all week and I just got it back with all new systems etc... That means I have to figure out how to use all of the new stuff and find all of my old stuff. I am not patient with this. Grrr!

Meanwhile....I am in awe of all the beautiful clouds! New Mexico has the prettiest clouds I have ever seen. The sky here is breathtaking and I can certainly see why it is called "The Land of Enchantment".
