My partner in the blog party is the talented glass artist Sheila Davis. Just look at the magic she worked with the pieces I gave her. Visit her blog here: http://www.stonedesignsbysheila.blogspot.com
Be sure to check out the other Blog Party Participants as well. There are HUNDREDS of them.
My project is far more simple. I had grand plans for having a canvas painted to mount it on and everything, however that just didn’t come together at all. I am happy with the pieces I have created however. Sheila sent me some beautiful glass beads as well as a few natural stone beads. I don’t recall what they were and I haven’t been able to find the post that said what they were. UGH.
One of the things Sheila sent me was a lamp work toggle that was beautiful. I wanted to have a way to feature it, so I thought I would make it part of the focal. However, as I was attaching the chain, I dropped the toggle bar and it broke. SO SAD. But I still used the hoop in a way that I really like.
Here is a close up of the earrings. I wanted to have them be a little different and not just symmetrical.
And a close up of the pendant portion of the necklace.
