AE Component of the Month for April -- Jennifer Stout Cameron

The component of the month for April was provided by Jennifer Cameron.  She made these awesome textured dichroic silver glass sparkly focal beads for us!


Yes, as usual, I didn't take a photo of mine before I worked on it!  I made this great focal piece.

I used a silver clay headpin from Andrew Thornton, urchin style bead caps, and a great pinch bail.  I had purchased some hand-dyed ribbon from Amy Kuczewski which arrived Monday in the mail!


Please check out what everyone else made, and thank you Jennifer for a great focal!

The silver combines perfectly with the colors of the gorgeous lampwork bead, that's a stunning focal!
This is beautiful! Very elegant with the silver headpin and bail-it really showcases the bead.
The ribbon arrived just in time! That looks fantastic! I love keeping focal beads simple and love how you offset it with the art headpin and the silver urchin endcaps. love it!

Perfect timing on getting that ribbon! I love the silver components that you added for simple perfection. (And I also appreciate that I'm not the only one who always forgets to take a picture of the component of the month first!)

Art Elements Theme of the Month - January - Use Your Stash

Usually I'm so much better about the January Use Your Stash Challenge (hosted by Lindsay Starr this time), but this year, time is just not my friend. Between the holidays, going away on vacation, and getting back to work and trying to make new beads, there's just not a lot left in me at the end of the day.  But I did manage to get this pair of earrings made using Inviciti heart charms, some new metal spacer beads I just got, and some titanium hematite beads picked up at a Bead Fest here and there! I really like them, mostly because they are simple and hearts are my thing!  Check out what everyone else made! Thanks for stopping by!
