Color of Dreams Blog Hop

Today is The Color of Dreams Reveal
My dream is to create one of a kind exquisite Jewelry that draws attention to detail and uniqueness. Each of my pieces being unlike anyone else. My dream is to use this talent that I believe is God given, to bless others, to bring a smile to someones face and give hope!!!    
What I designed using beautiful pillow bead

Each participating artist was given an orphan/ooak bead created by artist Patricia Handschuh of The Color of Dreams Boutique to design with. Simply create with the bead you receive and show us your dreams!
I fell in love with the color palette of this lovely pillow bead 

This was really fun for me, I have been out of the loop for a season and now hopefully I'm back and ready to create some fun and amazing new designs. Sorry for the delay in posting today, I had one of those God appointed days. And I'm just now getting home. So I can't wait to visit all the blogs and see all the creative works of art everyone has to share.
