First, is my completed project for the Year of Jewelry Week 6. This week's prompt was Embrace. As soon as I read the prompt, I couldn't help but think of a hug. Seriously, a hug. I know. . .I'm 12. Anyway, it became apparent that to see this vision through, I would have to WRAP something somehow. After scrounging through my supplies, I came across a filigree butterfly and a flat-backed teal flower. Well. . .we all know how much butterflies love flowers, so this one is hugging a pretty, pretty flower.
Check out the amazing work made by the other artists in the Year of Jewelry Facebook group for this prompt.
Also, I received my partner for the 7th Bead Soup Blog Party. This time around, my partner is none other than the awesome Cheryl Foiles from Get Your Bead On. Check out her Facebook Page, Etsy Store, and Blog. I'm so very excited. I was able to get her bead soup sent out to her this morning so I thought I'd share a little peek at what she's getting. (I hope I've distorted it enough to not give away the surprise.)
