Turtle time....

I was inspired to make turtles recently from some photos that Roger (my hubby) sent me from Omelek Island. Roger and his crew were busy launching a rocket (check out the SpaceX rocket launch on YouTube!) from this tiny little island in the South Pacific. But they took careful notice of the fact that turtles have nests on the island and made sure that these were not disturbed. Then, one day, they saw the little babies heading out to sea. This is a baby green turtle. And this is my new baby turtle bead....three little turtles floating on a sea of jelly fish (there favorite food!) It's a big bead, about 1 3/4" long by 1" wide (44 mm X 28 mm). Click on pic for more info.

San Diego, here we go again! It's time for one of my favorite bead shows, hosted by the Bead Society of San Diego County (BSSDC). The bead bazaar is August 1st & 2nd, and runs from 10 to 6 on Saturday, 10 to 5 on Sunday. I hope to see you there....and you can check out the turtle bead there...and much more!
