ZNetShows Design Team

Holy cow, y'all -- I got invited by Bill at ZnetShows to design some pieces using their sea glass beads.  If I  cross my fingers and make something spectacular (not at the same time - it's hard to make jewelry with your fingers crossed....), one or more of my creations may be used in ZnetShows' booth display in Tuscon next month.

Yeah, I can't believe it either!  As the former scrawny pipsqueak who was always picked last for any team in gym class, getting invited to be part of a team is a rush!

Anyway, I was thrilled to receive these beautiful beads:

Look at that variety!
What lovely soft shades of green - from mint to sea to peridot.  Aren't they delicious??\

A closer look at some of the seashell shapes included in the mix
As soon as I opened the shipping box, I was inspired to sit and create. And create. And create.

I can't wait to share the final pieces with you here as soon as they've gone to Bill to (hopefully) accompany him to Tuscon.

Wasn't this fun? I know I'm late hopping by and you've already had your reveal, but I'm trying to work in order (and exert some patience while I'm at it). I cannot wait to see all the beauties you created with these greens!!
