Mary, Queen of Scots

An appropriate ending to Tartan (or Scottish) Week is this post by Pearl, on The Beading Gem's Journal. She always does such great posts, and this one is no exception. This is a biography, in mini-style, so you can read it without having to buy a whole book. But she also gives you some reading choices if you wish to further your knowledge about this time in history! Her jewels are an awe, and her history is quite colorful! If you like this sort of thing, I highly recommend you visit Pearl's post!

hi-i'm off topic but i just discovered your blog and your crazy awesome beads. i'd seen these gorgeous color-drenched matte beads w/some sort of silver apparently drizzled along the middle and i'd been drooling over them, but i had no idea who made them. i am in awe. I want to drizzle silver all over my world! it's such a small detail but it just makes the bead. it's so beautiful, it makes my heart ache.
