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!

Bead Fest Update 3

Today I’ll show you some things I purchased for myself.  I have a bag somewhere with a few more things, but can’t find it at the moment! 

The first beads are from Holy and Pure Gemstone.  I’ve purchased from them in Monroeville Pa (here) before and like their beads.  In this case, I was inspire by Jenny Davies-Reazor and was looking for some stones to go with this focal bead I made.

Two Buddha charms from Hands of the Hills.  Really love these!  No idea what I’m going to do with them, but I just had to have them!

Something called titanium hematite from a vendor that I can’t recall now.  Wish I would have gotten a card from them. So many vendors don’t give cards in their bags, nor do they give receipts.  Kind of annoying…

I’ll probably have another wrap up update tomorrow for you!
