Alenka's Blogoversary and Blog Hop

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Alenka (Pepita Handmade) through an earring swap a few months ago!  She makes amazingly cool polymer clay creations.  She announced a giveaway and blog hop a few months ago, and I am in!  She selected some components, put them in envelopes, and mailed them off to us, not knowing who got what!  This is what I received!

Alenka didn't even know what she sent me, so she's surprised reading about this!  I have an idea already, incorporating my own lampwork beads!  I also know these colors happen to be Alenka's favorite colors, so I think she'll like what I make!

I have to say, I really love this global community of beaders we have all created!  Alenka is really such a sweet wonderful person and I would have never known her or her art if it wasn't for facebook, blogs and blog hops!  It's fun! 

Please stop back on August 11th to see what I have made!

That component is awesome, Sue! I love Alenka's colours, so refreshing. I just received mine today, too, and I was thrilled with them!

That is a beautiful piece. Can't wait to see what you design with it.

Ooh that's a gorgeous component. Those zigzags are so much fun. I love the glow it seems to have from slight transluncency of some of the zigzags.
