This is the soup that she sent to me...
I was thrilled! I loved the ceramic pieces that she made and love the combo of the turquoise, the brown beads and the orange ribbon. She was so generous with what she sent that I was able to make 4 pieces and have left over beads!
My first piece is a necklace using mainly what she sent to me.
I did add carnelian chips, a few magnesite chips and asked my husband to make me a red bird bead since I was using the birds nest charm and the beads had such a nature feel to them-which I love by the way! You can check out his Etsy site, Bubby & McGurk Beads, here.
In my second piece, I used the copper toggle clasp, Diana's ceramic beads and another of her pretty ceramic heart charms.
My 3rd piece has the pretty copper pinecone she sent to me, some of the wood beads and a piece of the ribbon that I had left over.
The Autumn leaf pendant is by Heather Powers of Humblebeads. The ceramic beads are by Gaea Cannaday. The chain and toggle clasp are by me using MissFickleMedia products.
And now the last piece..
When I saw those pretty brass pieces I knew that they were destined to be earrings. I used some AB coated Labradorite stones from Rock Candy Bead Studio and I really like the way that they turned out. Those stones are just gorgeous.
