I got in touch with Lori and she gave me a new partner, Sara Oehler of http://softflexgirl.blogspot.com/. I sent Sara an email and we exchanged our hellos and have a reveal date of August 11th, 2012. Sara is a jewelry designer from Phoenix, AZ. She works for Soft Flex company, and you can see some of her designs here and here. She adores color and in fact co-authored a book titled "Show Your Colors"!
She has written for numerous publications and as "Ask Sara" for SoftFlex Company many of her designs are featured as promotional pieces. She also teaches and demonstrates her designs at various beads shows. On August 15th and 16th Sara will be on the television program Jewel School between 10am and 12pm (EST). Since this is so close to our reveal date she might even bring her finished design to show on air. How exciting!
This is the wonderful soup I received from Sara.
I am very excited to create with the soup I received from Sara and hope that she enjoys what I sent her.
A few days after emailing Sara I received an email from Michelle. She apologized and informed me that she and her family had just moved and there were issues getting Internet access. She already knew from Lori that I had been given a new partner. I could not let her miss all the fun and told her that if she was still interested I would gladly be her partner too. She said yes and we have the 3rd reveal date. I am very excited that I have two wonderful partners. I have also received bead soup from Michelle and have sent hers out. I will do a separate post about Michelle and our soups.
I love this beautiful Andy Ray focal that is signed on the back!
Gorgeous Czech glass!
Beautiful Tierra Cast toggle clasp.
I wish I could have gotten a better picture of the boro glass beads, they really are beautiful.
I do not use flexible beading wire very often and I really want to try to use some of it in my design.
Here is the soup mix I sent Sara.
Enameled Flower I designed.
