At the start of each year I ALWAYS get so inspired to create new things and try out new techniques…it’s right after all the holidays, and I’m raring to go, so I sign up for different swaps to participate in. (It’s a challenge to stay on top of these projects but I do my best!)
This year one of the swaps I signed up for Lori Andersons Bead Soup party. Lori’s swap had 350 people sign up and was limited to 200. I was so happy to make it in even though I haven’t done this type of work in a looong time!
My partner is Rosy, a sweet young lady from Mexico. Read her bead story here. She sent me a nice variety of beads and found objects. (pictured below). Be sure to check out her blog where she’ll post what she did with the beads I sent her. 🙂
To make my project, I started by playing with the beads, arranging and
rearranging them, until I found something I liked. My goal was to do
something different and unexpected. I used a polymer clay pendant that I had transferred an image onto. The copper color coordinated with the burnt orange beads Rosy sent. I used the antique brass chain link to go with the antique key. It was a very fun project! Be sure to blog hop to the other participants below. Sure to amaze and delight!
