Once again it's time for the Bead Soup blog hop! Thanks to Lori Anderson of www.prettythingsblog.com
I got my goodies in the mail yesterday. Here's what I received:
They made a great Valentine's Day present! Talented people sending you clasps beads and other components which are a complete surprise because it's their choice on what to send you. In return it was my choice on what to send them. This way you get to know new people try new things and get goodies in the mail!
My partners this year are the industrious mother & daughter team Evie & Beth McCord.
Together they are EB Bead and Metal Works. This family team creats one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces from handmade flameworked glass beads, enameled copper and Viking Knit. Which as you can see in the picture I received some of!
They can be found at http://www.ebbeadandmetalworks.blogspot.com/ their components are much larger and bolder than what I am used to creating with. That's the nice thing about the blog hop. It takes you outside your comfort zone and this is a really GOOD thing! Challenges help us stretch, grow and get our creative juices flowing. Now I get to add some things from my stash and make something beautiful. Then all will be revealed at the same time! Actually there are so many participating that Lori has planed 3 different reveals.
Stay tuned! I will part of the reveal that happens on April 6th!
