My party exchange partner was Maria Grimes of Garden Path Beads. Maria is a lampwork glass artist, that has mastered the fine art of whimsy in her creations. She sent me this sweet set of beads in and bright and colorful red, green and white color palette.
Maria made this oxidized silver swirly hook clasp to use in my project.
The green and red leaf looks like it was made for this set! It came from Sabine at Little Cup.I placed the clasp at the side, adding to the asymmetrical flair of this garden themed piece.
I love the polka dotted theme in the beads that Maria sent. They really add a fun element. Although this color palette is not one that I normally work with, I had fun stretching my abilities and trying to think outside of the box, of my normal earthy tendencies.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my Garden Delight necklace.
I hope you take some time to leave me a few comments about what you've seen so far,
and have fun traveling through the blog party today!
I can't wait to see what Maria creates with the fun set of beads I sent her!
