I am, unfortunately, not able to post my creation today because a couple of weeks ago. I broke three fingers on my right hand and I can't hold a pliers. I will make something with these beads, though, and post it on here - I promise! As it is, it will probably take me three hours to type this with one hand!
I was paired with Christine Brandel of A Hot Piece of Glass (best blog name EVER!). She sent me this gorgeous selection of bead with a Little Red Riding Hood theme. I wasn't that organized when I sent her my beads - I just sent a selection of pretty, sparkly things.
Here's what she sent:
She DREW the card herself! I can't even draw stick people!
The lampwork was made by her, obviously, and there is a copper piece she made, some silver beads and some small black beads. I literally squealed with delight when I opened the package! Want a closer look? I'll let the pictures do the talking...
When I get to the point where I can hold a pliers again, I have a couple ideas in mind for this stuff. IN the meantime, please enjoy everyone else's creations.
