I am very happy to be part of this event and I want to thank Lori Anderson from http://www.prettythingsblog.com/ for the huge workload she put into organizing this event!
I was partnered with Leah Curtis and she sent me a wonderful bead soup with gorgeous ceramic beads, a charming sterling silver clasp she made herself and lots of other goodies, among which a beautiful beaded bead which was immediately snatched by my daughter.
I have made three necklaces:
The second necklace is made with the wonderful green crystal beads Leah sent me. Just the right color for this soldered pendant from my religious art series. To balance the dainty crystals, I added silver links and a clasp I made.
The third and last necklace was the most difficult to make. I love the silver clasp Leah made herself and wanted to showcase it, not simply hanging on the back of a necklace.Here is is, paired with one of my handmade lampwork beads and a necklace made of hammered silver links, made to match the clasp.
I hope you enjoy the blog hop and would love to read a few comments ;-)
