Copper Component Blog Hop Reveal


Copper Component Blog Hop!!

When my friend Kristi Bowman posted that she was making components available for purchase to participate in a blog hop I was excited. As soon as I got home from working at the salon I purchased mine and waited by the mailbox for it to arrive. When it did I knew exactly what I wanted to do. 
Which I should have written down because when I finally had time to work on my piece I couldn't think of anything.
 
I found these beautiful lampwork glass beads by Amanda Austin of Sea Shore Glass hiding in my bead tray. 
They added a beachy feel to the bracelet. I added a starfish from Humblebeads, porcelain beads from Gaea, beach glass, and a lampwork bead by Pink Beach on etsy.

I think this is beautiful! I love the white frosty ones - I think it wouldn't be as special without them. : )

CraftyHope said...

HA! I laugh because my last blog post was about my sketchbook and how I have to write down all my ideas or I forget them. I'm glad to see I'm not alone with that malady.

Anyway. . . your bracelet turned out awesome either way. I love the beachy feel to it and the colors you've used are some of my favorites. It's a lovely piece!
