Wow - long time!


I didn't mean for a month to go by with no posts - it's been a long time. At any rate, I'm currently working on the March edition of the BJP. I also got some torch time in recently, and came up with these fibula - style pins with the lampwork beads. They're made out of copper wire and lampwork beads, and I'll donate them to assist African grandmothers who are supporting themselves and their grandchildren. Fibula pins do best on loosely woven or knitted material, so they'll be perfect for adding to the knitted scarves and shawls that the other ladies are making.

Beautiful Karin! The upper right one reminds me of something pulled from Mother Earth and polished :)

They are so lovely, Karin! And I love the purpose for which you've made them and what they will likely be paired with. Perfect!
