It seems it's been a week when everything has come together and I can finally share some of the goodies I've been working on. This scissor fob was for Vonna and it was her (very belated) draw prize from the Monochromatic Exchange at the Robin's Nest. I drew from all of the participants who mailed on time, and I was excited to have such a great bunch of stitchers that all of their names went into the draw!
The focal (main) bead is one of mine, and it's got Swarovski crystal beads to help out.

This is the first project from my jewelery class - we've been busy riveting, texturing and soldering in the last couple of weeks, and this is the end result. I made the toggle clasp (at the bottom) as part of the class, and made the beads so that the clasp would have something to hang on to.
As part of this, I found a great new bead store in town. The owner provided some great suggestions on finishing the piece (the copper tubes were her idea) and she even asked about buying some of my lampwork, which is always a great compliment.
Dani hosted a biscornu exchange over at the Needle and Thread BB. My partner and I managed to time our biscornus so that they arrived on the same day, so here are both biscornu's to share.
I received a lovely Victoria Sampler biscornu from Katherine (StitchinKat) and sent her a biscornu from Indigo Rose. It's actually based on the "Peace" ornament featured in the JCS Ornament issue of several years ago. I used the button that I made out of glass to match the Dinky Dyes thread.

just smokin' busy..... It's been quite the month or two. I've been working on a biscornu exchange for the Needle and Thread BB and an ornament exchange for the SBEBB, so I don't have much to show... except some new beads. Hope you like them.
