I was thrilled to receive these wonderful art beads in the mail today. These are handmade by Alenka Obid of Pepita Handmade. Alenka is celebrating her "first blogoversary" by generously sending unique components to some of her blogger friends. The twist is that everything was packaged FIRST before being randomly addressed, so not only are the recipients in for a surprise, but even the sender doesn't know what she sent until we receive it. Cool idea, no?
So, I know it wasn't planned, Alenka, but you couldn't have made a better choice for me! I love these beads with their mosaic, over-dyed, organic surfaces, which are a treat to both see and touch. (Sorry for the sub-par photography, my basic little camera had a difficult time trying to choose between the beads to focus LOL.) They have a lovely translucent aspect. They are in a colour palette I have seldom worked with as well. I love this challenge!
I can't wait to see what everyone creates with their unique components. See you all here on August 11th for the reveal!
