And...... I have more eye candy for you tonight! I was the lucky winner of two give-a-ways during the Bead Soup Party..can you see me doing a happy dance?
I won these Pretty Things ...(you'll get it in a second) from Sandi Volpe. Sandy had the "bestest" idea of going to meet Lori Anderson (Bead Soup Originator) at a show, and purchased these earrings from her to give away..well, I love the idea because look where they ended up! The irony of it is I also met Lori for the first time at a show in Virginia and purchased a pair of her earrings as a gift for someone else! So, yep, I'm the lucky recipient of a pair of Lori's earrings this time...Since I don't make much jewelry for myself to wear, I'm tickled pink by these! Visit Sandi's blog, she also makes beautiful jewelry.
The other items I won, came from Heather Pyle of Aquariart. I love all the different techniques and design elements that Heather used in this necklace. You have to see it in person to know what I mean, but since I won't be paying these pieces forward, the picture will have to do. She was very creative in designing this piece and I'm thrilled to have it! Again, another piece, just for me and I didn't have to make it!
Unveiling and dancing a happy jig,
