Spring Color Beads

A customer had asked for more spring colored beads last week. So, during the Indian Winter (I'm not sure there is such a thing, LOL) when the temperature had plunged from 70 degrees down to 24 degrees, I made these beads and felt a bit cheered up with all the bright colors. The tulips in front of my house look so sad. They got beat up by the sun, rain, strong winds and even snow.
Fun Facts & Tips: April 13th, is the Traditional New Year's Day in Thailand. Since it is the hottest month of the year, we celebrate by throwing water at each other. It is a week long celebration called "Songkran". We would load the pick-up truck with all our friends, drive down the busiest street and get soaking wet. After that we visit the elderly and went to help clean the temple. We go down to the river bank, get the bucket of sand and bring it back to the temple to fill up the yard.
It is also my brother's Birthday. Can't imagine how my mom went through labor during the hottest day of the year. HAPPY BIRTH DAY, Bro. :)
