What a treat - I've been looking forward to this since the last Bead Soup Party! I just found out that my swap partner is Laurie Hanna! Laurie is from beautiful San Luis Obispo CA. From taking a peek at Laurie's blog - Laurie's Jewel Box, and her Etsy shop, I know I am already a fan.
I really love her distinct style, use of pounded metal with stones and pearls, her use of twisted wire,
and Laurie also makes her own lampwork beads. I'm so lucky to be paired up with this talented designer!
It will be great fun to see the mix Laurie sends my way - and I'll be putting her mix together soon as well.
