I recently did a post on Art Bead Scene encouraging everyone to "Embellish" themselves. You can see the article here: Embellish Yourself.
Shelley Nybakke, owner of "The Bead Parlor" in Bloomington, Illinois sent this picture along:
Yow! We should all looks so good!

This beauty was created with my good friend Donna Sloma. Donna made the pendant from an actual domino game piece! The black ring beads are some I made - all combined with other beads and chain I picked up at Ornamentea. (You can get the ring beads there also.) I love this necklace, great for the fall season, but I'll wear it all year.
Donna is one of those people that can take a pile of stuff that looks roughly like the floor of a kindergarten classroom and make something wonderful out of it. She designs pendants, pins, altered books and a huge variety of other things. You can get in on this talent by attending a class taught by Donna at Artists' Oasis in Apex, NC.
