I have been extremely lucky lately. I’ve been a little embarrassed to say just how lucky. But, I’m going to fess up right here, right now and tell you that I won prizes on 5 different blogs during the One World One Heart giveaways. I’ve posted about three of them already. Now, I’m going to tell you about this beautiful prize! This is the beautiful heart bead that I won from Elaine! Isn’t it magnificent?
This is the front and back of the bead. She was so sweet and she let me pick from beads she had made. I picked this one. I love it! That shade of blue in it is my favorite and I think I have some beads that will look great with it. I plan to make a necklace with it soon and post that also when I do. I just hope I can do it justice. Here are links to Elaine’s websites for you to check out her blog, her etsy store and her jewelry website. http://www.chatelainejewellery.com/
Someday I’d like to learn how to make this type of bead. It’s called lampwork and it’s made by shaping glass over fire, but that’s about all I know at this point. It looks like it would be very difficult.
