A big thanks to Sally at The Studio Sublime for putting this hop together again :-)
My partner this year is Kim from Kimmykats and I am THRILLED, to say the least! I love what Kim does with spoons and forks and how she makes them into jewelry. She uses them in very creative ways and has a style unlike anything I have ever seen. The beauty she brings out in the silverware...you just cannot imagine that they were ever used as utensils! And she sent me a pair of fork tine earrings and a spoon necklace. She turned this spoon into a lily. I have worn these a lot since I got them and people always want to touch the pendant and look inside it. It is too cool! Check it out:
Kim started beadweaving this year. She likes to refer to seed beads as "flying missles". Can she weave! Everything I have seen is fantastic...hard to believe she is a relative beginner. And guess how she created her ornament? With flying missles!!! I couldn't be happier! Well, I could...but we'll get to that in a moment. Kim's ornament will be proudly displayed for all to see over the holidays. And once they are over, I am turning this beauty into a necklace. I just have to wear it. It is begging me. It has all the elements I love...beauty, romance, crystals, daggers, bronze, Fringe!
How I could be happier? If I knew something about photography. So I could do Kim justice with these photos. The colors are so hard to properly capture with the crystal and dagger AB finishes. And we have not had a whole lot of sun around here lately. But I am so in love with this :-)
So here she is...my new Love! I even got a new sweater to wear with this once February rolls around and the decorations are all packed away. Beady Greatness! Thank you Kim :-D
And now please go visit the other Ornament makers. Jenny Davies-Reazor was my super-talented partner last year. I keep her ornament up all year long :-)
