The Greatest Pleasure in Life

I made my first piece with one of Anne Choi’s quote beads. The quote reads, “The Greatest Pleasure in Life is Doing What People Say You Cannot Do.”


I strung the oxidized silver bead with large gray pearls, dotted sterling bead caps and spacers and six blue flash labradorites. The clasp is sterling.


Easter is coming. Mother’s Day is Coming. Graduations are coming. Your birthday is coming.

And They Call the Wind Mariah

I bought a fascinating glass sculpture from a talented glass artist in Scotland. He called it “Wind.” But what I saw was a gorgeous pregnant belly. So I called the wind Mariah.

Mother’s Day is coming up and this would be a great gift to yourself to commemorate your pregnancy, current or past. Or a great gift to another mother.

I’ll let you decide what it looks like:


This subtle glass sculpture is aqua with deeply encased lilac dichroic on the front and gold, orange and aqua dichroic on the back. The artist added a violet luster when he annealed it in the kiln.

Whatever you see here, it would be a great Mother’s Day gift for yourself or another mother. My Etsy shop is SusanDolphinDelaney:
