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.

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!)
