The beaded beauty

I recently went on an etsy spending spree. I am now the proud owner of a whole bunch of stunning glass beads from the lovely Caladonia March. I want to bead everything in sight with these beauties. Add some rhine stones and a bit of Mata Hari style dressing up.

PS the frittata recipe can be found in Jamie Oliver's Italy cookbook. But it is just pan fried then baked eggs, herbs, flat leaf parsley, lemon, chili flakes and fresh raw prawns cooked till pink, salt and pepper. I served it with leaves and pan fried sweet potatoes.

Mata Hari is a fascinating figure in history. No doubt she's very inspiring for opulent bead jewelry...
