Wire wrapping a large lampwork bead.


This cold winter weather gives me a chance to sit at my work table and just BE.

Be me. Be creative. Be organized. Be quiet.

Once spring arrives I will be outside digging outside in my flower beds.

This piece is simply a free form wire design with two small beads and a large focal bead.

Attach it to a fan pull, window ornament, necklace pendant, zipper pull, purse bling. The ideas are endless.
