First, this is what I sent Laurie. She mentioned she lived on Kauai for a couple of months during one of our conversations so I decided to make her a Tree of Life Pendant to remind her of the luscious green trees. Laurie also mentioned she loves cool colors so I decided to use the turquoise chips for the leaves. Once I decided to use turquoise then the color scheme was set. I decided to hit the torch and enameled complimentary color wave discs and enameled beads and flowers. For the clasp I sawed out a ginko leaf and enameled the piece and made a copper bar toggle. Added to the soup are turquoise chips, earth tone picasso glass beads, and some Vintaj components. Can't wait to see what Laurie creates with my soup!
I got Laurie's package today and boy oh boy I love what she sent me! The picture does no justice to the beautiful lamp work beads she sent me! I love hearts and not only did I get a gorgeous focal heart, she made 4 more smaller ones! Also included in her soup were 10 beautiful lamp work spacer beads, 4 head pin lamp work beads, handspun yarn and cords, multi color jump rings, and bronze and sterling silver clasps. I just love the colors and can't stop admiring them!
I need to let these beautiful ingredients simmer in my head for a bit and come up with a design that will make Laurie proud!
Mahalo for visiting!!
