I got carried away

Heather Powers just listed the umbrella pendant in her husband's Etsy shop Jess Contreras. The pendant is a collaboration between her and Jess. I saw it 3 min after she had posted on Facebook about it. OMG! What do you do when you fall in love? as Dionne Warwick sang. I saw it together with Gaea's wonderful cloud which I've been wanting to get for some time now.
So there was no reason to hold back anymore. I had to get them both. Oh, and of course a few more things ended up in my carts ...

Does this happen to you too? That you get an idea for a piece just by seeing a component? It has happened to me a few times before. It's a wonderful sensation. Like you are in flow. I mean - I already know the name of the piece ...

Have a nice weekend!

I love when you see something and it inspires the perfect idea! I can't wait to see what you make!

Malin! I can't even stand it. That's PERFECT! I seriously can't wait to see the finished product.

Yes, I have been struck with complete design inspiration upon seeing The Component -- it is a great feeling. What a delightfully charming necklace this is going to be :D

I love that combination! That does happen to me sometimes, but not as often as I'd like.

That happens to me all the time! It's really bad for the budget ;)

I am still so excited by it all. Can't wait until they arrive in my mailbox.

@ Kate, yes, it sure is! I had planned to get more of "filler" beads and necessary components this month. Like jump rings, fireline thread and czech glass beads ... sigh ...

Gorgeous Malin! I love Gaea's cloud especially - in fact, I may well have one in my art bead drawer right now....Love Jess Contreras' new charms - aren't they all just so cute?

And PS, no, I have never had a component light bulb moment....I'll have to hold out for one :-)
