FINDING INSPIRATION

MY MOST FAVORITE THING TO DO IS TO DISCOVER NEW MATERIALS AND PIECE THEM TOGETHER. I RECENTLY FOUND SOME DELICATE CITRUS-COLORED DIAMOND BEADS. THEY ARE JUST LOVELY. I PLAN ON PAIRING THEM WITH A ROSE CUT 2 CARAT DIAMOND OF THE SAME HUE. I'M SO EXCITED! I THINK THEY WILL BE THE PERFECT PICK-ME-UP FOR THE UPCOMING COLD JANUARY CHICAGO WEATHER.

WHAT HAS BEEN HILARIOUS, HOWEVER, IS THE LESSON IN PATIENCE I'VE RECEIVED  WHILE STRINGING THEM. MICROSCOPIC HOLES IN THE CENTER OF EACH STONE HAS PROVED VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND. PERHAPS PART OF MY CHALLENGE IS ATTEMPTING TO WORK ON THEM AT NIGHT? I'VE HAD TO CRAWL AROUND MY ORIENTAL ORNATE RUG SEVERAL TIMES TO TRACK DOWN A ROUGUE DIAMOND. I AM SURE IT WILL BE WELL WORTH THE LABOR AND STRAINED EYESIGHT!
