The 7th Bead Soup Blog Party & The Year of Jewelry Project 2013 - Week 14

Is finally here!!! 

Meet my partner Lyn Foley, an amazing lamp work artist who sent me the most beautiful hand made beads in my favorite color palate of blues and greens. Here's what I received....


As usual, time got away from me and the necklace part of this piece did not get done, but here's what I did with the focal, which my DH suggested might be a Christmas ornament...and no, I did not smack him...
 


The toggle became a "spinner" ring.....

And a few of the beads wanted to become earrings.....

  6. Great work, Eva! Love the spinner ring idea! Your wire wrapping is so intricate, I know I could never do it! It's a unique way to treat one of those large focal beads because I find that they need a little something to give them substance or support. You found a perfect combination!
