On Facebook, there is a lovely community known as the Creative Bead Chat. It's an amazing place where beaders and jewelry designers of all types and skill levels can chat about we all love the most. I signed up for a Supply Swap and was partner with Lisa of Pine Ridge Treasures. Below is a pic of all the awesome supplies she sent me! I've already started working with the cute heart!
I also was the lucky winner of a giveaway! Sandra of Creative Chaos sent me these beautiful 'wing' themed collection of goodies.
When I signed up for Sally Russick's One Crayon Color Challenge over at The Studio Sublime I wanted to give myself a bit of a challenge and use a color that I don't design with very often. I probably should have thought this through a bit more, because I really didn't have much to work with. Oops!
Because the color red often symbolizes passion, love, anger and
energy. I wanted to create earrings with lots of movement and a bit of
spice! I used copper headpins with red drops at the end and spiraled
those around red glass beads that hang from copper hooks.
