I was partnered with Lisa Liddy of Metal Me This. She makes the most beautiful hammered metal pieces. You can check out what she is doing on Facebook as well or her Etsy store. I can't wait until I have a little extra spending cash because I have an idea floating around in my head for some of her donuts!
Lisa sent me this great soup to work with. I really appreciated that she sent me some seed beads since that is the main medium that I work in and I truly regret that all the ideas that I had for this soup did not have equal time to be prepared. As my soup arrived in the mail, so did three weeks of overtime at work which put a damper on my bead time.
I was able to finish a bracelet featuring the lampwork focal from Koregon Beads and clasp by Lisa herself. I wanted to incorporate the seed beads Lisa sent. I ended up making a herringbone structure that would encase the pendant and then strung all the components together to make this lovely bracelet. Even though I am more comfortable with beadweaving, I love how I combined the best of both worlds in this bracelet. When worn, it has more of a cuff feel to it.
I hope that you enjoyed my soup and I will be around to visit & see all the other wonderful soup being revealed today. Please be sure to click through the blogs and join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by.
