Do you remember the gorgeous Summer Pantene Bead Swap we had back in... I forget when? :) Yes, in June... phew... A reminder of the beauties Dee sent me: Beads in the mail!
It took me a while to get to some of her beads - but I finally did. I still have ideas for others, and I will make time to get my office done (the attic is waiting for me!) and move myself there :)
The small glass beads Dee sent spoke to me the loudest. Why? I love glass, and her cylinders are the happiest bunch I've ever seen! I used to have something similar when I was very young, a collar I lost one summer day and I still regret (can you imagine to sigh over a necklace for over 30 years?! must be crazy)
As I was (and still am) in a wire-work mood, I took them outside one gorgeous summer day (same day when I wrapped the ceramic and copper necklace) and this is what came from that:
Wire wrapped and jig elements with the happy lampwork in the middle. I temporarily called it 'Summer morning', but I'm not sure if it's the best name.
What do you think about it?
