August BJP

One of the pieces of abalone I bought at the pow wow has found it's way into this month's bjp, along with some of the new metallic charlottes....my, they are pretty! Here's a photo of the ones I bought...a finished triangle pendant from diane fitzgeralds new book using some 22kt.-finish beads from the pow wow along with some vintage nailheads and a close up of the abalone piece...I love the organic shape of this piece.
I haven't taken a lot of landscapes this summer, but this one of the bay at sunset is one I managed to do.

That abalone looks like it grew in place with the beadwork you chose to go around it.

where do you get your metallic charlottes from. i have been using some in a couple of pieces of work and they were opaque pale blue #13 adn a grey #11 in my april bjp piece.

I got mine from Baker Bay Beads in dorena, oregon, diane. They don't have them in their online catalog yet, so you would have to call them if you want to order any.
