Meet my lovely Swap N Hop Partner, Becky Pancake!
Becky has been making jewelry for 15 years.
|My partner Becky made this for Octoberfest last year.|
Octoberfest is hosted by Toltec Jewels at:
This is one of my favorite pieces that Becky has blogged about.
I love orange in any way it comes! Tints, hues, translucent, opaque, pumpkin...
|I also sent her all of this!|
I wanted to give her lots of choices
in the colors, focals & handmade items.
Not only did I send her items that I've made,
but items I've purchased or received in recent swaps
by other talented artists!
|This is a paper mache' birdhouse|
that you can buy at Michaels Arts & Crafts Stores
I happen to work there in the jewelry department & teach jewelry classes!
|In my stash I found an old metal wind up music box someone gave me about 15+ years ago.|
I cut off the roof of the birdhouse. Viola, a music box in the making. Which beads to use, how will it be executed?
|Here's what's left |
after all of the designing,
pinning, decisions & & executions!
posting suggestions, rules, FYI's & executing quite an adventurous experience!
