Dalmations and Other Spotted Dogs

Marti Conrad made this adorable bracelet cuff and matching charms.  I love the turquoise green on the spotted clay and I love the little spotted dog.  Marti loves dogs so I know that a lot of dog love went into this set.  And if you know just a little tad about me, you know that I also love dogs - probably more than is healthy for me so this set is truly an homage not just to all the spotted dogs out there that are loved by their humans, but all dogs.

I paired the stoneware with some absolutely gorgeous lampwork beads by Deb Houde that look as if they were made to match this cuff, some porcelain black beads by Ingrid Mueller (by the way Ingrid, I need more black beads) and some really nice Brazilian Aquamarines. The earrings are made with black lava beads.  I have a few of the silver ox beads and I am very stingy with them but I thought it went with this bracelet perfectly.

I also want to remind you that Kristi Bowman's Big Hole Component Blog Hop is this Saturday, June 30, so be sure to check back for that.
