can I have a drum roll, please...

I finished my second piece on Wednesday!.  So here are both pieces, with close-ups for both.  I'm please with how they turned out, and I have so say they are definitely out of my normal comfort zone, which was my objective.

  14. Really nice wire work. Both necklaces are beautiful, but I think the one with the copper is especially gorgeous and such sweet little earrings to match! I hope you post pictures of more of your work in the future as I'd love to see what you keep doing :-)

    1. Thank you, Liz. Comments like yours and others are inspiring and provide a lot of "fuel" to be creative. I joined the bead soup blog party to try to step out of my comfort zone, and it did just that. I will post more as I do them.

  25. I LOVE your creations! I love the wirework you did to create both bails of the necklaces. I love the colour combination you have chosen for your pieces too, especially the 2nd piece. The adding of copper wire and red coordinating beads really made the 2nd necklace stand out. The focal you created for the 2nd necklace is so pretty.
