New wire

It's been a while!  I have been weeding out and organizing and before I knew it January was gone!  I don't know where it went, but I know I was busy and I didn't spend much time on the blogs.  I'd quickly check in and then be off to do something else.  I also didn't spend much time creating, just clearing out.  I did make a few tags which I'll share in another post.  I thought January was supposed to be a quiet month!  Oh well, I think I'm back!

I've signed up for a lot of classes this month.  The first one was Saturday at Bead Soup.  It was a wire working class with Sally Stevens.  Sally is a local jewelry artist who teaches at Bead Fest and some of the other national shows, as well as in her home studio.  She designs wonderful wire and metal jewelry.  I've loved her work since I first saw her at a local show.  The design she taught Saturday was one of my favorites. 

This pendant and neck wire is one of Sally's designs that I've wanted to make for a long time.  It looks so intricate but when you break it down it's really not difficult to make.  The lampwork beads are made by Sally's daughter and they are beautiful!  Here's a close up of the pendant.
We left the class with a completed necklace and I've worn it and gotten several compliments on it.  I couldn't be more pleased with it.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful day.  January's over and we're heading towards spring!!!
