First of all, I create a summer theme for Kary.  I design the mermaid clasp with some pearls and corals and some starfish like clasp and earrings or connectors.  Additionally I create a teardrop pure copper chain, add some czech beads and enameled beads.  Everything in bright and joyful colors.

Now, I want to show you what Kari sent me 🙂

Immediately I received my beads I fall in love with everything.  The wood and the ceramic beads colors are just perfect.  The first bead that catch my eyes was the wood beads with Alice in wonderland theme.  I personally enjoy and love Alice in wonderland story; mostly, the recently Disney movie.

And here are the photos of what I create!

Nan is from Canada and she is the host of My Country Blog Hop, that I participated the last year and really enjoyed.  She has been making jewelry for 4 years and recently start to making beads and components in polymer clay.  Now she said, she is addicted to polymer clay!  I think everybody has something to be addicted or feel in love with.

I didn’t visit Canada yet (who know… someday) but I always remember an oral report that I have to make for school.  And the first time that I saw the flag of Canada, I fall in love with that beautiful maple leaf.   I don’t know why; but the image always comes to my mind.
