i heart macro Sunday

I know diamonds are supposed to be a girl's best friend, but I have a thing for pearls.  There's just something about pearls that seems so luxurious.

Earlier in the week, I came across this necklace designed by one of my favorite artists, Erin from Treasures Found.  I fell in love with the pearls, the silk, the rhinestones and the sheer opulence.  Erin inspired me to find my inner diva. I'm hoping these fuchsia and purple babies will set me on that path.

By the way, the inspiration for Erin's necklace can be found here.  Deryn, the author of Something Sublime, posted a single picture and issued a blog challenge.  Deryn was interested to see what other beaders would create using the same inspiration picture.  If you would like to see the other challenge pieces, check out Deryn's blog.  There are some real beauties!
