Isn't the internet wonderful? And isn't Flickr fantastic? I check my Flickr activity every day (often numerous times each day!), its such a great way to keep up with what people are doing, get feedback from your peers and there's so many pretty pictures to look at!
Angie of Weirdly Wired.
I love the simplicity of the shell bead, and how the swirl is off-centre. I just had to rush out to the Torch Porch and whip out the dark ivory and make a glass version. (I love how it nestles in the copper disc too).
I'm sure many people will understand when I say that its all about the making - once a bead is made, and cooled and cleaned, maybe photographed, certainly stroked and admired for a little while - well, then I'm satisfied. I don't need to keep it, or do anything with it, I need to pass it on. So I asked Angie if she'd like it - fortunately she didn't think it odd that a complete stranger from halfway across the world would ask for her address!
Now, I haven't exactly been pacing, I've not been quite that impatient ... but I hadn't forgotten about the little shell-like bead, and I have been .. anticipating .. what would become of it.
Wow, now that's what I call star treatment!
Doesn't it look fantastic? Gosh I love that clasp.
Angie's wire work is really beautiful, she has great imagination and a very professional touch. Take a look at the bigger picture of this wonderful necklace and the rest of her photostream here
