Kristi Bowman’s Wonky Bead Blog Hop  - Reveal Date September 16

 Wow, it took my wonkies -made by Kristi and here is 
 her Etsy shop - only a few days to travel from
Snohomish (US) to the Netherlands. The postman made me very happy
with the delivery only 6 days after my order.
Are they special… and wonky
. They are characterful  and don’t need

much additions. At least not in the way I want to design the jewellery.
3 Pieces, that’s my goal! The beads speak for themselves,
they just need a little ‘something’.
Since the beginning of September I’m  ‘playing’ with stainless steel wire,
it’s so much fun. Some parts of the jewellery are hammered.
To my first piece -Berries & Cream- I added some Agate, Rose Quartz,
Beryl, a little Ruby, Crystal and a Fresh Water Pearl. This necklace is mine,
and will go very well with my lbd with its pink accents!

In the second piece I worked with the gold coloured and the
fuchsia coloured bead, still on my beading table after having finished piece nr. 3.
What to do with them? Well… with the Agate beads I suddenly had a bouquet
of Autumn Roses ;-) the wired Rose clasp is the finishing touch!

Tetouan was 'a piece of cake', blue, brown and a chocolate brown silk ribbon,
no doubt about that colour combination. A lot of wirework, but the bronze

wire was not that difficult to work with.

So, Kristi, thanks to you I had a great time! Thanx♥ for organizing the Hop.
