I really felt that I owed this post to Lori and everyone who has participated in the first round of reveals in the Bead Soup Blog Hop this post. This is the post I would have posted had I not been drawn away with the emergency of my daughter. I want to start by saying "Thank You" to Lori, my sweet, sweet partner, Jean Yates and everyone from the first reveal. When I had finally gotten my daughter down to nap and I got a chance to sneak into the hop to see how things were going and I have to say I was so very touched ( it brought tears to my eyes :) ) when I saw how many of you had taken the time to express your feelings of concern and caring and support. And a very special thank you to my very special partner who I feel so very fortunate to have been paired with. She has been so very sweet, and supportive to me, giving me a place to lean on, and I am happy to say that I have a new lifetime friend. You all have touched me so much and gained a special little place in my heart.
For the hop I made two pieces. The first of the two is a Handcrafted Wire Wrapped Pendant which converts to a Brooch. For this piece I wire wrapped links made up of beautiful polymer clay beads made by clay artist Emma Ralph, Jade, Fresh Water Pearl, Crystal and Gold Glass Pearl Beads.They are connected to wire wrapped spiral links that meet up to a handcrafted, very romantic Lace Neckline. The necklace is finished with a beautiful Patina'd flower clasp.
Here is a close up of the pendant/ brooch:
I will close by thanking you for taking the time to come back when the hop is all said and done and finished to come back over here and read the blog post that would have been~
THANK YOU!! XO XO (((((HUGS)))))
