Spring Green Beads

The 1st of March and Spring is almost here.  My astrology reading this month advises me to lie low for the first 2 weeks of the month so that is what I intend to do.  I have been looking at my birth chart this week to try and understand what the planets have in store for me.  I know astrology is looked upon as mumbo jumbo by many people, but when you have lost your way you look for any signs to guide you.

I have learnt his week that I was born with my sun in Aries, rising sign is Virgo and my moon is in Pisces.  What kind of career/lifestyle choice can I make from that? A fire,earth and water sign - all contradictory!  Aries is a dominant leader, Virgo is a perfectionist concerned with health matters and Pisces hates to conform!  I am more confused than ever.

Back to the title of this post.  I have acquired some beautiful green glass beads.  They have a soft opacity about them and make me think of a gentle Spring.  I don't think I am going to make anything fancy with them.  I sometimes think simplicity is best so I will make a stretch bracelet with maybe a spring hare charm to compliment the piece.  I will come back and show you the finished article!

Have a lovely weekend.


  1. They are such a pretty green!
    I don't think astrology is mumbo-jumbo, I think it has is place in the world.
    I'm an Airies! I'm not a leader, and although my favourite colour is Red, I am extremely shy! Now What do you make of that!!

  2. A stretch bracelet with those chunky beads will look good. Look forward to seeing it!

  3. Your beads are such a beautiful shade, looking forward to seeing your new bracelet and a little hare will just finish it off nicely. :)
    Happy weekend Simone,

  4. Your beads are so pretty, Simone! I look forward to seeing your bracelet when you have made it:)

  5. The beads are a gorgeous colour, Simone! I love the idea of a bracelet made from them with a little hare added sounds so pretty!
    Have a wonderful weekend.
