Here's a close up of the bail I created to showcase the Earthenwood Studios pendant sent to me by Terri. I used a bronze clasp created by Jill Eden, from Eden Art Glass, along with most of the other beads sent in my soup. It didn't turn out as expected, but I DO love how it turned out :)
I had great plans for what I received from my partner, Terri G. My plans included a little bead embroidery, a lot of twisted herringbone, pearls (because I sent her some, too), and an elaborate necklace along with a couple of unrelated pieces. You know what they say about plans, yeah? The beads decided they mostly wanted to stay together, and be in one piece. So I created a bail & added a few Czech beads & a gorgeous handmade bronze clasp, and viola!

... and the beads! The heart shaped rose pendant & rectangular link are from Earthenwood Studios, and she also sent a variety of Czech beads, charms, red Malay jade, deep red wood? beads (not sure, but they are lovely & earthy), and seed beads!! This will be so much fun to work with, I am already inspired :)
