Yippee! The day has arrived to revel what we created from our partner in the Beader Hoader's Blog Hop. My wonderful partner, Elizabeth Bunn has already posted her revel so I am behind a little bit. Elizabeth is a fantastic lamp work artist from Texas and I was over-joyed to receive one of her focal beads and several glass donuts that she had made.
After much trial and reworking of ideas, this is the necklace and earrings I designed----
The focal bead is so beautiful I thought you needed to see a closeup of it.
While we were waiting for the revel date, I attended the Delmarva Wool and Fiber Show in Ocean City, MD. I found this wonderful yarn that screamed at me to go with the glass roundels Liz sent.
This is the first time I have used fiber in a pair of earrings. I think I really like how they turned out.
Thank you Liz for the wonderful bead soup. I still have lots of the soup left so who know what you all will see next.
Now it is time for a confession and an apology. For the first time since I have been doing the Hops under Lori's direction, I did not follow her wonderful advice. She told us to get our soup together before we found out who our partner was going to be, which I did. Then she told us not to check out their website or blog until after we mailed off the soup --which I did not do. I was so overwhelmed by the beauty that Liz creates that I second guessed the soup I was going to send her and I pulled together a hoarded soup that was nice but not what I really wanted my partner to have and mailed it off. I then stewed on the idea that it wasn't what I really wanted to send for a week then sent the original soup to Liz. Once I mailed it off, I felt joyous and happy about everything involving the party. Next time, I will listen to Lori and follow her wonderful directions. Lori takes so much time and effort in everything she does and writes for her events that I was rather foolish not to pay attention. for that I do apologies to you Lori McDaniel Anderson. My confession is over and I am going to go visit everyone else's blogs. Check out Lori's blog for a list of everyone in the party and I look forward to seeing everyone's comments.
