I am very, very excited to be a part of a bead swap titled Bead Soup. A lovely, generous gal named Lori puts it all together. She pairs us all up and sends out the info. The partners swap beads and then on a certain reveal day we will post of creation on our blogs. Then we have the chance to visit all the blogs and see everyone's creation.
This is a necklace I made copying a drawing done by my then 6 year old son (he is now 23). I made it using the lost wax technique. I made the bee in wax, using melting tools. Then I cast it in sliver using a centrifuge. I used amber beads in order to replicate a honeycomb. It makes me happy when I wear it. :)
