Okay, so I wrote before about how I am participating in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup party this time around. I've made up my package of goodies and sent it off to it's new home in Indiana, and MY package from my party-partners arrived the other day!
Check this out!
I got TWO sets of yummy lampwork beads:
and the most awesome enameled frog shape, done in beautiful red-browns and yellows and greens:
Oh, and a silver toggle clasp, too!
Now, I have to be honest, at first I thought...hmmm...a frog. A frog? Not really in line with what I normally do. But, this is all about the challenge, right? And it is a beautiful piece and I just knew if I thought about it for a while, I'd come up with something that was spectacular.
The idea is in my head....and almost in my sketchbook....and about to be made into something real....
And I'm not sharing! Nope, not yet!
You'll have to hang on til the start of the party....which is the week of June 19th.
Stay tuned! There are going to be so many just amazing and beautiful works to be seen, I can hardly wait! I'm just dying to see what else everyone is doing!
