It's Almost Time for the Third Reveal

It is almost time for the third reveal and I have been so busy working on my projects that I have been very lax about posting to my blog.  My lovely partner is Danielle Kelly of Imbue the Muse.  She loves working with her torch and polymer clay.  Unfortunately, she has been recovering for hand surgery and I am not sure how much she will be able to do with the stuff I sent her.  I sent her the following:

She advised me that she liked big beads and she also enjoys copper and seed beads.  This is just a small sample of what I sent her.  I created a beaded pendant for her but most of the stuff for some reason was blue.  She must have been thinking along the same lines because this is what she sent me.
As you can see, she sent me a lot of blue mixed in with pink.  This was a terrific challenge because I don't usually work in pink and blue.  She knew I had been in a beading wasteland with both beading block and lack of time.  I have not beaded much in months due to a lot of demands on my time and energy.  She certainly challenged me to get back to beading.  She didn't send me just one focal but many focals and it was a challenge to do justice to her lovely enameled beads and components.  She made me get extremely productive and I have made multiple projects with her soup.  This is just a tease.  Thank goodness Lori gave us a few extra weeks and I hope you will look forward to next Saturday's reveal.  I can't wait to see what Danielle made with her incapacitated hand!!!
