Temptation

The theme of this month's challenge is Temptation.
The idea for my necklace has popped into my brain the very instant I learned about it. Let me do some explaining.
After giving birth to my two rascals, I've got a bit overweight. Well, make it a lot overweight... And I am truly and deeply addicted to chocolate. You know the feeling of watching that tasty bit of chocolate bar? Feeling its gentle aroma, and how it melts in your mouth... But you know that you actually should rather not take it and eat it? Right?

This lizard might use a gift certificate at Weight Watchers. See how it is hypnotizing that large and juicy dragonfly? This lizard is tempted.

Do you feel the urge to run to the kitchen to get some chocolate? I do! ;)


Great thanks to Mia for modeling! And thanks to Cheryl for some of those gorgeous gemstones!

Your lizard and dragonfly are wonderful. How can you do fabulous beading like this with small children?

It's just wonderful Olga! I love the lizards 'toes' :) He would make a great brooch on his own too!

Good luck with the challenge :)

Thank you for commenting, dear All!

Yapp, that's bead embroidery. Way too much fun. As addictive as chocolate. Beware ;)
