Here's what I blogged earlier:
The requirements were to send a hoarded bead. I sent two Sarah Hornik lampwork lovelies - an artist I'd long admired, a ceramic disk, a copper focal, a bunch of my own lampwork, a good chunk of vintage (middle column - either French flea market or German new stock) and a bunch of things that I'd consider "ordinary" - right column. It was a bit of a risk - purple, green, and orange! What kind of mean partner does that? Fortunately, Joanne loves this, or so she tells me, and I can't wait to see what she does with these!
