My bead swap beads: Ema K rules!

Big Shout out to Ema K.  Got my beads yesterday and have been oogling them on and off since.  Pictures will follow this week.  Sorry, work and house are in the "way" this weekend.  All I can is gorgeous cannot describe my bounty.  I'm not worth, I'm not worthy...........

MY bead partner... Ema K

Hi all,

My Bead Soup partner is Ema K and I will let her words explain her and her work:

"I am a lampwork artist living in Central Massachusetts. I have been involved in the arts all my life. My family has a range of artistic abilities, ranging from making wool rugs, painting and stained glass to name just a few.

Personally I have worked in ceramics, drawing, painting, tole painting, wool felting and quilting. I have found my passion in lampworking. I could sit at the torch all day creating. I hope you will find joy in my creations as well."
(From the website:  /about the artist)

Here is her amazing Etsy shop ------>  Ema Kaye's Etsy shop
Here is her blog  ------->  Ema K Blog at Blogspot

Ema makes beautiful lampwork beads and I love glass, so I could not be happier!

I hope everyone else is having a blast....back to picking beads for Ema.....

Updated drops

Happy New Year everyone!  I thought I would open my new year with blog about an update to finish off a pair of earrings.

I knew they needed a little something, something.  I think these simple small glass pearls finish these off nicely.  Off to post them on Etsy.

May all your dreams, hopes and aspirations materialize this year!!
