Today, I’m participating in Lori Anderson’s Bead Soup Hoarders’ Edition!
I’ll keep the post short!
If you haven’t had a chance to read the previous post, my Bead Soup Partner is the lovely Bonnie Coursolle and below is the pendant that she sent me!
A beautiful dancing moon goddess!! *swoon!! created by lampwork artist Louise Ingram. I just love the sway of the hip!
It took a few days to work out a design and colorway that I felt properly honored the pendant. And I’m in love with how it turned out and have already been wearing the necklace quite a bit. Thank you Bonnie for the beautiful pendant!!
The necklace is a mix of beadweaving and stringing. The beadweaving stitch is tubular twisted herringbone using size 11/0 seed beads.
Thank you Lori for hosting another wonderful swap!!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have sometime today to create something!!
I threw my hat in the ring in hopes of getting picked for the Art Elements Component of the Month for February. And as luck would have it I was one of the lucky ones and snagged a beautiful polymer clay heart created by Jenny Davies Reazor. The perfectly scarred, cracked and broken heart captured my soul. You can view the original AE post here: Art Elements February Component .
The main theme of the February Component was to “spread the love”!
This component challenge couldn’t have come at a better time! There is so much rage festering and anger oozing all over social media that we are forgetting our kind word vocabulary and have gone on the attack!
We are so much better than this! Like the heart for this challenge we all, everyone of us, has been wounded, scarred and broken in someway. Look kindly on others, their baggage may be heavier, wounds may to deeper and scars may still be pink.
Today. Yes, today I have a challenge for you. SPREAD THE LOVE!!! We all can use a little more love today and everyday!!
Thank you Art Elements! And THANK YOU to Jenny for the opportunity to create something with one of her beautiful handcrafted artisan component.
