Weekly Bead Blogger Links and a Round Robin Update


Several months ago I was asked by Andrew Thornton to participate in a small Round Robin, to create a necklace to auction off in order to raise funds for Relief Efforts of the oil spill in the Gulf. 
I was the first one to get the necklace and didn't want to over do it, so added just a few watery elements: the lampwork headpins from Gardanne Beads, the shell focal from Beady Monkey, and some wire wrapped blue faceted glass beads . It's finally been sent on to the next person- Michelle Mach- and I feel so bad that I had it for as long as I did! Time is getting away from here, but
I am so thrilled to see what it ends up to be in the end!
