February's booming!

Apart from my artistic pursuits, I DO have a hobby. It's making beaded jewellery.  This necklace and earrings I made for my dear friend, and fellow artist, Aileen Shaw, who celebrated her 70th birthday to kick off the month.  It features amethyst, her birthstone, and an eclectic assortment of other beads and silver, in an asymmetrical design.

The birthday party was themed purple and pink, and guests obliged by wearing those colours. 

That party done, the next was the opening of the exhibition from my last post. It was an evening to celebrate women, and the Rosebed St Gallery was very obliging by having Sista, two sisters who are musicians, play wonderful music on violin and cello.

They also brought in a belly dancer who really knew her stuff.

It was a huge celebration of 'girl power' in all forms.

We females are unstoppable, capable of so much in this world.  Just get out there and do it!
