Holy Moly! I'm a Lucky Girl!

Look what I got yesterday!

Wow!  I am so lucky!  Julie Vallejo from Rocker Jewlz is my Bead Soup Party exchange person and just look what she sent me.  Gorgeous lampwork from Payton Jett, beautiful bright citrine, apple jasper, and a sweet dragonfly clasp.  How did she know I like dragonflies?  She really outdid herself and I can't wait to get started on a fabulous piece with these beauties.  Thanks so much, Julie!

And take a look at what she has in her shop.  These cupcake goodies are fabulous and perfect for Valentine's Day.

Chocolate Pink GLAM Cupcake Lampwork Earrings with CZ ear hook
Cupcake Elegance Lampwork Bracelet

Please check out her blog and shop for the sweetest little creations!

Ok, now I know I promised pictures today so here's two of the pieces I made for the Bei Mondi shop.

Satin silk ribbon in a soft lavender with biwa pearl wire wrapped in center.  A few Swarovski crystals on the side for sparkle and held together with silver cones and a hand forged clasp.

 Simple earrings with Sue Beads lampwork and swirls of sterling.  Love the colors in these beads.  Oh, and I believe Sue is having a sale on lampwork heart beads right now.  Check it out!

Yeah, I know you gals were hoping for more and there is a lot more but I'm in the process of polishing about six bracelets, earrings, and a necklace.  I hope I'll have fingertips left after all of this polishing with steel wool.  And now I have a Bead Soup Party piece to create on top of that which I am super excited about.  There's lots to do so I'd better split.  Hope you gals have a great day!  :)
