I have made a statement

There will be no traditional ABS Carnival Blogger Post in June, due to a lot of us bloggers being busy with Bead and Button Show. The unfortunate ones that don't get to go have decided (under the lead of the talented Cindy Gimbrone) to fill the empty space by creating a tribute piece to Bead and Button show: a statement necklace.

Now my statement contains neither a lot of beads nor a lot of buttons, but a lot of wire. For me, it is a true statement though. It is large. It is pink. It contains those wonderful etched lampwork beads from Mermaid Glass.

I tried to get out of my comfort zone (everything I make is small and more delicate), thinking that I will probably never wear this. And guess what? I really love it. It hangs wonderfully around the neck and collarbone, plus it is a totally new shape for me.

    What a lovely necklace. I like the shape and the color and the wire wrapped around the scallops. I think Cindy was so brilliant in coming up with this idea. It is such fun.

    This necklace is super nice!
    Brave to get out of your comfort zone. I feel like I first have to understand what my comfort zone is before I can leave it. That's where I am. So ...

    Have to also take the oppurtunity to thank you for tipping me about the Bead Soup Party. I am so very happy I joined!
