Fill me Up Little Cup!

I was perusing the ads in the back of Stringing magazine (the summer issue) and found a coloful and fun add for Little Cup, Ceramic beads by Sabine Brunner. I was immediately smitten, and looked up Sabine's website. Favorited her blog. Started stalking her Etsy shop. Sent her an email. She's so friendly and nice, she wrote me back immediately. I ordered the beads in the photo above. I love em! They are fun, colorful, happy- perfect for summer. Look how cute that little sugar skull charm is!
Yesterday I put together a steel wire-wrapped bracelet using Sabine's blue heart bead. Another cool thing about her beads, they have designs on both sides, which is great for bracelets if the beads flip. I paired her bead with a really cool one of a kind lampwork glass bead from The Orange Bell, a regular ceramic round, and one of Diane Hawkey's LOVE beads. The red round, is sponge coral.



Check out my little heart clasp! I had fun testing out a different
wire shape for this piece. I like how it turned out.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
