Liz E of Bead Contagion found some very cool blue goldstone donuts, and like any good friend with a box of goodies, she offered to share. Beads, donuts, blue, sparkly? Um, yes, please!
These beads, as you might guess from the name of the hop, arrived in the mail in the dead of winter. And like a clear, dark winter night, they turned out to be a delicious deep blue with the sparkle of a million stars. So pretty.
Recently obsessed with chances to improve my budding soutache skills, I whipped out my soutache, my seed beads, and my dandy new scissors, and decided this was the perfect chance. And boy, howdy, did I have fun with this! I don't usually name my pieces, but I think this one has named itself "Night In The Kasbah"...
|You can just glimpse the jump ring that will eventually connect this pendant to a necklace, |
but wowza, look at the goldstone sparkle in that donut!!
Liz, thank you for the beautiful blues, and thank you for the chance to create! These beads were a bright spot in the darkest part of a long winter. And now, to wait for the breeze outdoors to warm up enough to evoke the warmth of the Kasbah...
Now, go see what everyone else made with their sparkly blues!
