My partner Marianne Baxter sent me several challenges. The first was a focal bead that was made by Debbie Hull. The colors remind me of the sea. I also received two starfish. I think you can probably see or sea the direction I went with the challenge.
Also included in my package were gold tube beads. I had fun with the pink beads and gold tubes making a bracelet. It is nice and light weight for the summer!
There was a fun bag of hexagon crystal beads and a second bag of a mixture of beads. I mixed both with some other crystals and made a memory wire bracelet. I loved using memory wire because I am clasp challenged. I am switching back to either memory wire or magnetic clasps.
Marianne is also studying glass work! She sent me a beautiful pendant and earrings! I would encourage her to continue her lampwork. When you visit her site please give her words of encouragement ! I love the pieces she sent me.
Now I am going to send you hopefully to Marianne’s site.
