I'm thrilled to be accepted for Bead Soup and I can reveal that my partner will be the Amazing Lori Anderson, who came up with this splendid idea, and wrote a book about it and has several fantastic blogs! Yes I will gush shamelessly. So firstly let me pop up the following links, whilst I can still remember how to do it...
Now let me explain a little, you just swap beads, clasps and a pendant with you partner and show off what you have created on the reveal day! Easy...but I'm a bit scared cos it's Lori and she makes amazing stuff and most of you know that sometimes, ( okay maybe more than sometimes, ) I have had the odd lapse of taste. Skulls and shells anyone. Oh and I have been known to send out bags of crap..
Then there is my cat problem
I eez not sharing beads!
And I don't like soup.
It is difficult trying to think about what another jewellery creator would like, what their tastes are and what you think they would like to try out style wise. So fingers crossed.
I'm in the process of emptying out my craft room because my daughter is coming home and I need to stash a huge amount of stuff into my already packed bedroom. Note to self...Stop hoarding..
I keep getting distracted and making things instead of packing away, here's some work in progress
These will be earrings will layered shell discs.
Rose quartz and pearl, just need ear wires.
Matt agate- just need to blacken my wire and argue with myself about whether to use hemp cord or leather..
Better get back on task and continue with re-homing my stash.
