Lovely giveaway beads.I am glad you did not ask us to vote for the one we liked the best, because it would be hard to decide. I voted for the Spring Fresh Pastels on your color surveykk, because I am ready for Spring to arrive.

Hi Jelveh:
Every time I read your blog, I think the same thing. Wow! Jelveh is really busy. You manage to make a ton of beautiful beads, socialize with friends and family, and teach classes. Very impressive! You go girl!
I love Monterrey!! What did you have to eat at Lalla Grill?
Hi to Martin.

Hi Jelveh, We have had rain for almost 2 weeks with only 2 days of nearly sunshine. At least all the snow is gone for now. I love the focal on the right with the pinks or reds with the ribbony look on the lower half, it really jumps out at you. It sounds like you had a great weekend, hubby and I celebrated our 33rd anniversary and our mortgage burning all last weekend. Yippee! We had a wonderful weekend.
Peace and love

Jelveh, the beads are very nice as usual. You can send some of that rain our way, the Gov. just declared our area a disaster due to drought. Our farmers are going to need some beauty in their life this summer to have hope. I'll go vote on the colors and enjoy. Your flower bead gives me happy thoughts!

Hi Jelveh,

We gave the bead (necklace) to Richard's mother for her 90th birthday. What can you get for a 90 year old woman who needs nothing. We also had a large party for her in Orange County. The necklace was the hit of the party. She wore it & it matched her outfit & the party decorations. I can't believe how great your work is!

XoXo
Joyce

It feels SO good to see all that color in the photo of all the beads!

Hey, when clicking your blogspot on this post, it takes us to some bible site instead of your blog...just an fyi.

I hope I win!

hey all, sorry about the link thing on the email I left out the s in blogspot, and it goes to some strange bible place on line, I have no clue why...
yes it is sunny today, 72 degrees as we speak, I am so glad, I had to leave my rain coat, boots & gloves at home, first time this year...
Joyce I am so glad she liked the necklace, you are too kind, see you on Sunday for Persian New Year (my second mom)...
Ginny girl, yes its true I am a busy girl all the time, but I promise I am having time and I sleep in often to get some rest...life is good...
Hey Sue, its true we all need the rain, I hope you get enough, we will send you the extra we have here...just last year we were being told to use less water, but now we are doing well & have plenty of water for a while...I always say water is going to be the next oil...I just hope we figure out how not to over use it so much...
Jelveh
Peace

Love your new beads, especially the pink and copper green combination. Beautiful - I love that green! My mom loves her key bead so much and wears it all the time, and now I have to hand out your etsy address to many people! I am glad others will have the chance to enjoy your art too.

Have a wonderful week.
