Pipe stems and pom poms

One of our favorite things to do in London is go mudlarking on the Thames. It's pretty easy to find these clay pipe stems. They are the remains of one-use tobacco pipes. The smaller beads are from Miss Lear's pottery class, umpteen years ago. And the pom poms are made with remnants of Rowan's kid silk haze.

I think i might have been in a beading class with you in DC or at the least a bead store. Coincidentally, i beaded 8 bracelets yesterday for the first time in years...for my DC era bridesmaids who couldnt make it to our wedding in 2015, but whom i'll see this weekend in upstate NY adirondacks.
