Hooping It Up!

Copper Hoops surrounding some of my favorite Recycled Glass Headpins by Genea.
I think these were my last pair so I definitely need to get more.

I took a pair of my copper hoops, roughly wrapped some pale Recycled Sari Silk around then roughly wrapped them with copper.

The photos don't do justice to the beauty of the glass, it's really so soft and beautiful.
I think I need to wait for full on daylight to capture them properly.

I'll be at the Whole Bead Show in Lynnwood WA
The Lynnwood Convention Center
May 2-4
You can see these earrings and lots more finished jewelry and components live and in person!
My friend Linda Landig will be there too!!!
We hope to see you there, please say hello!!!!

    I may just have to drive up there and say hello to you both this weekend! :-D
