Beautiful, just beautiful. I love twisting wire into jewelry, but I do not have the patience to do the intricate weaving and tension work involved in Rose's wire art. I had seen the pendant in Jewelry Affaire, the magazine, and had fallen love with the copper twisting and the wonderful wire wrap around the central turquoise bead. And then I get paired up with Rose by Lisa! Pretty cool.
Rose sent me a wonderful soup to work with for the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party. I'm excited and nervous.
I love that key hole focal, but I have no idea how I am going to use it... I've never worked with a focal piece that's wide and short! I've got some ideas percolating, and I've worked on some drawings. I hope my ideas work out, 'cuz I'm not sure what I'll do if they don't!
I'm envisioning some polymer clay, some metal work...
Me and sparklies are so closely entwined I should have been a raven. I've never met a sparkly I didn't fall passionately in love with, so those glass crystals have found a home where they will be adored. I love using Lucite flowers in my wire-work, and am looking forward to seeing what I can do with those new shapes. I've never worked with the cute little four petal flowers.
Isn't that button clasp great? Beth and I have just started playing around with the idea of buttons as wired clasps. I'm in love with these clasps and am looking forward to creating a home for this one.
Check back in on Saturday, August 25th for the reveal! I expect to reveal something fabulous and fun.
