Sonnet 130 : Happy Valentine's Day

Nunn Design® Innovation Team member, Erin Prais-Hintz  has created this lovely ode to Valentine’s Day. Her Channel Bead designs inspired by her favorite love poem, Shakespeare’s sonnet 130 are gorgeous. Read more details on her blog.
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.
          And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
          As any she belied with false compare.
