One of my AJE Team Members and I were at the NW Bead Society Show this past weekend.
I wanted to do a post about it but find a way to put a different spin on it.
Not just eye candy but we decided to show some of the items we purchased and show you how we paired them up and what we made with some of them as well.
My first purchase was from our neighboring table at the show,
Lori Bergmann Design
. I knew fairly quickly what I wanted to do, in fact I had trouble sleeping Saturday night because I lay awake and made them a few dozen times in my head and couldn’t go back to sleep.
I’m happy they actually worked out the way I thought they would.
The little dangles actually remind me of little Goddesses.
|Goddess Fulcrum Earrings
The Goddess shape made from the headpin and a czech glass bead from my stach is a fulcrum, it dangles and swings from the copper wire strung across the 2 sides of the inverted copper V.
I also received the Ceramic/Porcelain beads below from them and thought I took picture with them included but when I edited my pics AFTER I made the earrings I realized I hadn’t.
A perfect pairing with some of my new Polymer Clay Leaves.
The layering of greens give the leaves a mossy quality.
Linda’s goodies from Oh Sullivan.
This Oh Sullivan Shell is a perfect match to Raven’s Journey Czech glass beads.
Czech Glass paired with Ceramic/Porcelain beads and a wonderful Raven Pendant from Oh Sullivan.
Linda went out of town shortly after we returned from the show so wasn’t able to finish her creations but you can see how she was able to put things together.
Here we are behind my table at the show.
