Hot Wired



Two wonderfully quirky jewelry pieces of jewelry, handcrafted from wire. Made years apart, by different artists, both gifted to me. I treasure them. Strange how they both "match" each other, each a warm copper wire and a flower motif. The most recent was a gift from the delightful Val Sparkle, during our recent blogger meet-up on her last visit to Seattle. I had such a good time meeting Val, and like many of my blogger pals, we felt instantly at ease, as if we already knew each other.

I suppose we do.

I have a huge cocktail ring made of a LARGE pearl and wrapped copper wire--from a very successful eBay friend here in KC! I love jewelry like this. And, I love the photo of you with the hot pink lips!

Love your photo and the your lips color!
Receiving gifted pieces of jewelry is always so wonderful!
Right now I'm into a green shirt that I just purchased at the Salvation Army.

You are the best - thanks for all the attention! I kept waiting to read more about the wire ring, though. And I really should make more bead people for the shop. They're fun!

You and Val in the same room as me ... swooooooooon-fest for me!!!! It's interesting how so many bloggers say they "know" their blogger friend in meet-ups. Like you say "I suppose we do"! Perhaps blogging is yet another way of building close, honest friendships, something that's here to stay:) xoxo
