Second I want to say thank you to my partner Stephanie Weiss. It was wonderful to have her as a partner. I really like her work. It was great exchanging emails and learning more about each other. We have alot of the same likes and are both learning to work with metal. We are also hoping to meet up at the Bead and Button show this year...sweet!
I am so excited to see what she made and to see what she thinks of my pieces. This is her first party. I'm sure she will have a blast.

Here is the soup she sent.
Gorgeous stone and copper, some lampwork glass and handmade copper clasps.. a really gorgeous color pallette. For an extra surprise she sent everything in this cool little tin.
There was enough to make multiple pieces.
The first piece was made using one of the focals. faceted red glass beads, and a large copper bead sent by my partner. I mixed in a couple of my lampworked beads. a very large, very gorgeous amber bead,goldstone,new jade, and some recycled copper components I made.
The second and third pieces. A necklace made with hand wrought heavy gauge recycled copper wire and some gorgeous stone briollets and handmade clasp sent by Stephanie.
A bracelet made with recycled roofing copper that I cut and textured as a base for the cabochon and riveted it on with strips of copper. On one side I made a chains with the small jasper beads and alternated it with chain. The other side I used heavy gauge copper wire to make a sort of chain maille.
Here is a little reminder of what I sent stephanie. Can't wait to see her pieces!
