Hi everyone! It's way past time for some pictures and some beaded journal updates. I am behind, I do know that but I'm getting back on track and that is a good thing! I want to introduce you to three pages, can't remember which ones I've posted lately, I probably could have scrolled through to see but I'm posting anyway.

This is Amaterasu and she is all about Beauty and the Sun. She helps crops grow. The green is a rice paddy.
This is Damara and she guides and helps children. Can you see the baby's face? Click on it to make it bigger, and you might just see. And yes for all those who know how not fond of pick I am, I did use it - Damara called for it!

Pele is Divine Passion and hearts true desire. She is a volcano. Those are crystals at the top which made them hard to photograph.
I used my daughter's camera and I thought I could get better pictures but I don't actually know the settings very well so I think I'll either have to learn or I'll go back to the other camera.
Cheers, Denise

These are all beautiful, and yes, I could see the baby's face! I love the explanation behind the pieces. Great job!

I love that they are all a bit different but my fave is Damara....

These goddesses are really cool, and I also have a soft spot for Damara.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I need to find the good or better camera, or get my daughter to help me take better pictures.
I'm working on BFAC right now.
Cheer, Denise

Your three pieces are stunning, Denise!!!! The pictures, I'm sure, do not do your work justice. You need to set the camera on macro so the pictures will be in sharp focus. In macro mode, it works best to set the camera on something steady (like a bag of rice), otherwise camera-shake can make your photo out of focus. I hope you don't mind me making these suggestions... I would so love to see pictures of all three of these lovely pieces in focus! Thanks for posting and sticking with us, Denise! Hugs, Robin A.
