The Reveal Day – 8th BSBP

Today is the reveal day….it’s been 3 months …and I’m almost not realizing it….whewwww…. Lori is incredible….with all her suffering she still managed to run this very big event participating by 500 people from around the world, with 135 are international participants from 30 countries/territories. Thank you Lori…..

In this year BSBP I was partnering with Ien Temaluru https://www.facebook.com/ienmaginations . I am very sorry that she is really sick at this moment so that she cannot join this reveal day. But, lucky me, she managed to send her bead soup…..which were incredible….

The bead soup was wrapped in a beautiful box
box

She loves wire jewelry and metal smithing and she knows that I love cats…. so these were the beads that she sent me
from Ien
Incredible isn’t it? The cats are so beautiful…she can capture all the cats details….

To tell you the truth, I was and still am confused what should I make….I am not really good in using figurine as objects in my designs. And then I saw the beautiful wire jewelry by Louise Goodchild and I realized that you can tell a story with your jewelries.

So these are my cat stories,
1st necklace - 3
1st necklace -2
2nd necklace -1
2nd necklace - 2

The 1st necklace is about a cat and the butterfly…To make it 3 dimensional I put the tree behind the cat…
The 2nd necklace actually is not really tell a story….

And for the clasp, I used it for the bracelet…. I took from my stash all green beads….ooohhh how I love green….
the bracelet
bracelet - 3

I still have 2 more cats and some metal beads that i plan to use for my hijabi’s pin.

I hope Ien likes what I did to her bead soup…..

When I worked with the jewelry, this was what happened every time I left my table.
