my partner's reveal...

My partner, Amanda Tibbetts, has posted what she made with the bead stash I sent her.  She created a very pretty necklace that sets off the focal perfectly, and a charming bracelet which highlights the pretty clasp.  I think she did a lovely job.

You can see her pieces at: and you can find all of the participants of Bead Soup Blog Party by going here:

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.

First Blog Party Piece Done

Well, I finished my first piece.  I tired to combine brass and copper in one piece, but it just never was right, so I went with all brass so I could use my pretty focal and links.  After working and reworking, I finally am satisfied with the way it turned out.  Now on to the next piece since I haven't used the copper clasp yet (the rules say I have to use the focal and clasp).  I already have some ideas...stay tuned.  My reveal date is April 14, I think.
