Beads of the Universe

Hi there! Today's beads are part of a strand that I just received from Wilma's Whimsy etsy shop. I happened to come across her site recently and when I saw these "universe" beads, I was intrigued. They are very planet like and when you get a closer look, you can almost see some scenes of land and sea. Really cool!

I am planning to use these as focal beads in some bracelets for friends. It's great to have little reminders of the vastness of the universe especially when we find ourselves in tiny, little insignificant stressful moments. It helps to pull you back to the big picture, adjust your perspective and move on.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Aren't these beads lovely.....I'm always fascinated by lampwork, I guess because I can't imagine melting glass and ending up with anything except a blob! All the colors and the way it has to be at the right temperature, etc. It's a lot of work, and Wilma's beads are great! Teri

So organic, could be earth or universe. Have purchased beads from Wilma and really enjoy them. Glad you found her too.

I'm also a fan of Wilma's beads and I'm glad you've featured her work here and in your recent post! Your universe bracelet is lovely!

Very pretty beads. Now I'm tempted to try glass eventhough my husband would divorce me if I start buying more tools. lol
