Some of you know already about the past week....no laptop for over a week and the passing of my BFF's dear mother, may she rest in peace. I won't go into it again except as a means of explanation for why I haven't posted my Bead Soup Blog Party creation until now. I finally got my laptop back, uploaded my pics from my external HD...thank G-D that worked cause I don't know where I'd be without my photos!
My Bead Soup Blog partner was Kristie Roeder of Artisan Clay. She sent not one, but three focals to play with. I only had time to use 1 so far, but definitely plan to use the others at some point in the future. For this piece, I used her clay donut for the focal and some of the amazonite rounds she sent. I made a couple of lampwork glass lentils to match as well as some glass discs for the other side. I decided to go with a copper clasp I had in my collection to pick up some of the coppery highlights in the drops that you see on the left of the pendant. Hope you like it! Please go check out Lori Anderson's blog and visit the numerous super talented folks involved in this.
I've had some major computer issues this past week and now have my laptop in for repair. Sadly, all my photos are on that laptop. On top of it all, my BFF's mom passed away last night. :( Needless to say, I have to be there for her in the week(s) ahead. I feel so badly about disappointing everyone, especially my wonderful partner, Kristie Roeder, but hope to be able to put up a late post later in the week. I apologize to all the wonderful Bead Soup Blog Party participants, but this was all unforeseen & unavoidable. I can't wait for some quiet time to be able to visit all of you.
