And drum roll.....
I'll be working with Patty Johnson who has several years of amazing experience in a wide variety of mediums including bead and glass making. I admitted my admittedly love (OK, obsession) with lamp work beads. She's done some great work as you can see below. :)
I also love that she uses all sorts of materials -- not just the traditional. Just take a look at her work below which she created from upcycled computer parts. Amazing. In fact, she said that things have come full circle because as a child she took bits of things like soda tops to make jewelry out of. That's awesome.
I love how creative these both are - I would have never thought of either of them. You can find her information below:
Now... I've put together the Bead Soup for her. Here's a teaser of what I've sent.
I know - a BUTERFINGER tin. I usually love tins like this because they can be punch, sawed and drilled into so many nifty jewelry components. I've put in some of my favorite things. I know she'll come up with something completely different than I would. I'm looking forward to being able to show you WHAT I sent as well. I hope she likes it as much as I do.
