California Poppy Bead


This California Poppy Bead is just the sort of bright, lovely little bit of inspiration that I need on a day like today, when the dog is soaking wet and stinking it up something fierce, my ankle is slightly sprained thanks to a slight miscalculation (okay, major depth perception problem) at the gym and, not that I need to mention it, but it’s raining looney toons out there and Nor-Cal c-c-cold.

Artist Mary T. makes these intricately adorned glass beads in her Burlingame studio and sells them in her etsy shop. I love the idea of creating indie fashion from handmade objects. It’s like indie fashion on steroids. Love it.
