A Bead Freak's Lament...

I really hope someday to be
The crafter that I want to see
Take on the world with nothing more
Than pearls and wood, shells from the shore
Some abalone, glistening bright
A few Czech crystals, sparkling light
Lampwork bead or two, three or four
a bit of chain, jump rings and more
Perhaps some lucite flowers-bliss!
Or gold and silver earwires, this
Would all be lovely fantasy
If I were anyone but me
Cuz certain as the sun will rise
I'll almost finish, and then - surprise!
The last damn bead I cannot find
And once again I'm in a bind
The last bead order, sent away
Did not include this one I need TODAY.....



  1. When I first glanced your new title entry, I thought it said "A bread Freaks Lament"...needless to heart skipped a But then I zeroed in on your gorgeous bead work. The colors are exquisite and you are so talented. This will definitely sell!


  2. Thanks for the compliment, bunny...and BTW, I am a bread freak too...maybe that will be next attempt at doggerel.....

  3. That's so funny because I too thought it said "bread" LOL! Maybe because I baked bread yesterday and I'm trying to not eat it all!

    Your bracelet is absolutely stunning! Actually all your pieces are beautiful!


  4. It's so comforting to know that I am among fellow carb addicts..

  5. Beautiful jewelry & fabulous poem! I love beads, too--not quite as creative with them as you are, though!

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!


  6. your jewelry is gorgeous! thanks so much for stopping by!

  7. You are so funny Mizdarlin.
