An addition to the 2nd Annual Bead Peeps - An Angel request...........................

Well - all the goodies have been sent to partner one and I was asked to be an Angel and add a second partner - Sheila Poster.  Absolutley!  My second partner is proficient in Bead weaving and works in a medium where I seldom venture - Geometric Beadwork - Jean Power style.  Not that I do not admire the style of this type of beadwork - I've just never ventured there. 

I find Sheila's blog a very natural expansion of growing into our craft and her curiosity admirable.  Therefore,  she shall have a surprise package coming her way tomorrow - a new style of beading. 

Please take a moment and meet my second partner for the 2nd Annual Bead Peeps Blog Hop:
http://catswithbeads.blogspot.com,  and stay tuned for our reveals. 

Two for one..... yippee!

It's Kinga....... Kinga Nichols that is................

Last month I was able to exchange a few Cabachon's with Kinga - she had posted she was looking for Sugar Skull cabs to complete her kits and I had ( 5 ) spare Cab's from a order I had placed.  Lovely little Sugar Skulls..........................

In exchange I received Kinga' leaf cabochons which I just think are wonderful.  I love the pendant technique that she uses by incorporating the bail into the embroidery so I gave it a try and I am very please with the results.  Completing the rope for this piece now.  I'll probably have to photoshop this photo and replace - all my I-Phone photos always rotate.  Aaargh! 

I've always admired her beadwork and use of Lovecraft themes and colors that are just, Wow ..... really Wow! 

Spend a few moments and visit Kinga's Blog at:
