Diamonds are a girl's best friend.....

I have read that "diamonds are a girl's best friend, but pearls become a woman." I have no idea if that is true or not. I mean, I think diamonds and pearls are both lovely! And on a girl or a woman...not so much on guys. Of course, I am partial to pearls. They are my birthstone. Anyway, now that that pre-blog ramble is out of the way...On to the post!
Hi everyone! It seems like forever since I have written a new post. So I thought I would show you what I made today! Here you go!

 
This is everything!

Ring two...the blurriness is an added bonus!

Ahh. It's nice to sit back and enjoy a job well done :D I bought the wonderful glass buttons at a quilt show in Lansing back in May. It was my first day on the job during my practicum (internship). That was such a lovely day! Then I got the dark blue crystals at Michaels on sale. The lovely pearls I purchased at T&T in Grand Ledge. It is kinda funny how these pieces came about...We got back to Indy last night from a trip to MI for my grandmother's memorial service...so we were all pretty lazy today. At lunch time, my mom asked me why I was not beading and...well....I did not have a good answer. So after the lunch dishes were dry and put away I sat down to make something amazing, if I do say so myself. It was not very challenging, but it was very, very fun. Beading is so wonderful! I have also been knitting a sweeter. I will post some pics as soon as it is done :D
