After a long hiatus, I also recently opened my Etsy shop Colibri Designs and put in a few pieces there. I love all kinds of jewelry, so there I have my jewelry pieces I create with beads and gemstones. I put a link to both my shops on the side bar here on the right.
Also exciting, is that I've joined Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party. I decided to join to help me get those creative juices going after my long break from working with my beads and maybe get out of my comfort zone. I tend to gravitate to a certain delicate style of jewelry design and I'm looking forward to receiving beads that may be different than what I'm used to purchasing.
Last I checked, there were 397 participants from all over the world. This in itself is exciting. Lori will pair us with a partner and we will exchange a focal bead, spacer beads and a special clasp. Once we receive our beads, we will post a photo of them on our blogs. Then we are to design and create a piece and share a photo of that piece on the day of our assigned party date.
Thank you to Lori for hosting this great event (this is the 6th party) and letting us connect with other creative people from around the world. Can't wait to see everyone's work.
