Now it is time for the third reveal, which unfortunately was postponed twice due to Lori's unforeseen ill health. We all wish her a speedy recovery!
My partner, Joyce Becker of Peoria, AZ, sent me a wonderful bead soup.
www.Etsy.com/shop/EmandMad. The stones are turquoise, lapis, tiny tourmaline spacer gemstones, adventurine, iolite, copper glass beads and a couple of copper beads. Joyce also sent along an extra Tierra cast copper clasp and a painted, imprinted & embossed bird Vintaj disc. With so much to work with, I could not wait to get started!
The focal from Emily Claire's shop & the variety of stones were calling my name, so that's where I started. Of course, copper was the optimum wire! My friend & daughter's mother-in-law, Kay Thomerson of KayzKreationz, was trying out a new tool that bends wire (I forget the name) on my copper wire.
Next I wanted to play with the beads, so I attached a small string of them to each side of the focal & made another string to place above with a variety of beads. I added a few copper beads as spacers that I had in my own stash.
Next came more wire! Woohoo! Never enough wire ------
And .... more wire in another pattern & design. Ending with Joyce's handmade copper clasp.
Here's the final outcome of the necklace.
The complete set!
This is the bead soup I sent Joyce.
