My bead soup partner is Cory of Art with Moxie. As soon as I knew who I was paired with, I went to find out as much about her as I could. I saw her Flickr photostream first and just fell in love with her abandon in using color and form. I thought, that Lori Anderson’s a smart one – my work tends to have this neatness and control (maybe not the right word, but the one that comes to mind) that is the opposite of Cory.
And so, I hope we help each other stretch our creative muscles a little bit. A lot would be OK too.
Here’s what I sent her. She has received the package so it’s OK for me to show you. I thought I was playing it safe in what I sent her. She says it’s a stretch. Eye of the beholder, what can you say?
Here are the beads.
I sent African turquoise, golden agate, wood and ceramic beads. Here are the focal bead and clasp I sent – handmade sterling silver.
I await what comes to me!
