My bead soup was carefully packaged into a handmade quilted bag. This bag is fabulous! I love the colors, texture and the bird theme. Although I have not quilted in a few years, the bag makes me want to break out my Bernina.
Wow, Amanda sent me hand dyed silk not knowing that I am really into designing with silk right now.
This next picture is Amanda's handmade toggles/connectors. The wood toggle is made of bronze and the dress/hope toggles are made of brass, copper and resin. Be sure to drop by her Etsy Shop - Amanda Davie to see more of her creations.
My bead soup mix is a wonderful assortment of fresh water pearls, ocean jasper, glass, quartz, vintage bits, Swarovski rondells, a locket, as well as, a Drusy quartz and egg bead.
Brass is my favorite medium to create in. Pictured above are bits of chain, filigree oval beads, leaf charm and misc. bead caps/beads.
My focal pieces include a lovely handmade lamp work bird bead, brass/resin bird charm, copper stamped journey charm and a little bottle dangle containing a tiny feather. All items featured above were handmade by Amanda except the lamp work bird.
Amanda even sent me jump rings and head pins. Notice the packaging (note to self, work on packaging skills).
Here it is in all of it's glory. My fabulous "Amanda Mix". Let me know what you think of my mix. I just love it. Anyone have any creative blog links for packaging/paper crafts?
