Some Lucky SueBeads

Gotta give a shout out to my bead swap bud, Sue Kennedy, with these earrings!
Sue sent me a great selection of beads, but the bestest ones are the ones she made.  For these two pairs of earrings, I picked some pairs :  one set of lampwork glass and one set of her new enameled beads.
First, the vibrant red enameled bits are combined with some bronze-colored copper coils that I twisted for a nice dramatic dangle.  Then, for the second pair, the olivine green lampwork rounds are set up with some striped agate and purple, yes, bright purple, coils.

I think it's so cool that a session at the work table can come up with such different pieces...but with just the perfect things in common:  awesome handmade beads. 

Feel like getting your shopping on? 
First stop at
my etsy shop to see all the latest goods--I just added a few earrings and some necklaces. 
Then, go see the latest
SueBead offerings.

  5. Hey, Jen! Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog AND for letting me know how you found me. I love those BAO mosaics... they force me to work with colors I might not otherwise choose.

    Now I'm following you, so watch out!
