What can come into my mind in sleep...

In the beginning of summer, I blogged about my 3rd place in a beading competition. I won a "mystery pack" from Nooras Silvergrejs - respected and highly recommended supplier of silver findings in Sweden. In the package that Noora has sent to me, there was also a bag with a "challenge" tag on it. Inside was a lovely handmade fuzed glass cabochon, shimmering in hues of golden-blue-green-pink-and-hundreds-of-other-undescribable-colors.

How does the red color affect a bull? Everybody certainly knows that. Well, the effect that the word "challenge" has on me is somewhat similar ;)

But, I was tired, depressed and stuff, thus the cab was lying quietly for couple of months. Until this Tuesday, when I went to sleep. Somewhere on the borderline between sleep and being awake I saw a lotus. It became a chain: lotus - India - gold - red - garnet - BLING! - gold - more gold... ;)

I've captured the cab with 24K gold-plated Delicas that I've bought one day (just in case, good to have!) and never dared to use.


Taking pictures of dichroic glass is fun, I just love the way it is shifting colors depending on the angle!
That's it for today ;)
Take care!

P.S.: Not for sale! My own, my precious! ;)
