Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!!

It's finally the reveal day for the most awesome opportunity ever in the jewelry making kingdom...ok, maybe it's not a kingdom, but Lori Anderson is the Queen of the Bead Soup Blog Party!!

Because I am in the first reveal date it has gone by quickly. As a recap, I received my package from Patricia Johnson who is a lampworker. Her work is beautiful and worth checking out.

Here is what Patty sent me.


Here is what I made.I was able to do some soldering, stringing, some wire work, some deconstructing of earrings, and I even made the clasp. Thank you patty for sending such wonderful things to work with!!



Here is the side clasp that I made from copper wire. I just had to give the butterflies some flowers to land on.
