I Heart Macro - Aerial View

Can't you just see the outline of some volcanic island chain, with the blue waters reflecting the sky and clouds and wind currents?

Or some undersea adventure with all the aquatic life around?

A strand of micro worlds

All woven together into a universe of sorts

I sat down yesterday with instructions in hand and created my first Kumihimo necklace with boro glass drops and hand dyed silk ribbons that I picked up last weekend at Beadfest Philly.

The rain stopped long enough for me to take it outside and get a few shots to do this post and link up with all the I heart macro goodness over at Studio Waterstone.
Head on over to see what everyone else is focusing on this morning.


  1. OMG That is gorgeous!!! They are exactly like tiny fairy worlds!

  2. Yes, I can see the under the sea creatures. So cool..nice macro..

  3. That is gorgeous.. You did an awesome job. Love the colours and the beads are indeed a world of their own.

  4. Beautiful work, both the necklace and the photos! Those beads are pretty awesome too.

  5. This is amazing! Love boro beads and your design with the fibers ... luscious!

  7. Laura, your necklace turned out so amazing!!! I really, really love it. My oldest son made a Kumihimo project last year at school and right away I knew I'd like to learn how some day as well. Looks like you've really mastered it because this sure looks complicated! It looks like a true labor of love. If you ever make any to sell, I'll be the first in line! :-)
