Happy Birthday Sister!

My sister lives in Dublin. For her 30th birthday last year I bought her a Pandora bracelet and Murano glass bead. This year I thought she might like another bead to add to it.

I caught her at a crazy time, 5 minutes before she was leaving the house for a flight. Did I mention she hadn't finished packing? I pushed her for ideas on what type or colour of bead she might like. I threw questions at her. Glass? Silver? Dangly bits? She answered in brief single words. No. Yes. No way! I found out she is not a fan of hearts. This was a new one for me. Not a fan of dangly bits either. Simple. Simple. Simple.

And then she reminded me about the last bead she bought me.

The one that represented the fact that the sun, moon and stars shone out of my arse and then she hung up the phone!

I went shopping to my local Jewellers. I told the woman all the above stipulations. And then I told her what I wanted. Unfortunately they didn't have quite what I was looking for so I decided to try to make my own. This is the result....

I hope she likes it. 
Almost as much as the other one that is wrapped in tissue paper hidden in the bottom of the box...
