Mardi Gras book thong

This book thong is special to me because of a serendipitous moment during its creation. Usually, the name of a creation would come to me at some point as I was making it. I knew I was going to name this one Mardi Gras because of the brilliant and intense colours which reminded me of the masks they would wear at the carnivals. Then I thought - does Mardi Gras have any official colours? I did a quick google and what do you know?! The colours of Mardi Gras are indeed purple, green and gold - the exact colours of this book thong!

And for the first time, I've used a cloisonne bead in a book thong. I've got some in blue and green too. :)

So ... what do you think of this book thong? View more pics and details here.

Very pretty! And festive! The bead is perfect! We loved living through Mardi Gras when we lived in MS. It was so much fun.

Thanks, B. :) I've only ever seen Mardi Gras on TV (Discovery Travel) and magazines ... I love the colours!
