Deb of storybeader also featured my "margarita" hand dyed silk scarf in her fun green treasury In honor of St. Patrick's Day.
Here are some of her handwrapped Florentine marbled paper
beads"When I went to Italy in May 2012, I found the shops of Florentine papermakers, Francesco Giannini and Gianni Parenti, called Il Papiro. The gentleman at one of the shops asked me if I would like to see how they hand marbled their papers. I was thrilled."  She describes the paper making process in her listing.

Spring is in the air is the lovely treasury curated by Cynthia of Antiquity Travelersshe featured my "margarita" hand dyed silk scarf.
Cynthia makes a variety gorgeous jewelry inspired by her travels, using only gold and silver with a huge variety of semi precious stones, pearls, shells, and handmade beads.  "We hope you’ll like our broad and adventurous style in jewelry."  These earrings "feature a pretty ceramic porcelain in a soft green that I paired up with hand hammered 16g silver wire.  The swirls remind me of new ferns in the spring as the furls are just starting to unwind."
