Finally the day is here… Reveal Day! 🙂 First of all is you want to read the first part of this story click here to meet my lovely partner Kari Asbury from Hippie Chick Design. So first of all I want to show you what I sent to Kari….
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!
I really had fun working with the beads. I feel free when I use fabrics, leather, ceramic beads and copper wire. I love to add whimsy touches for every design.
Well, I hope you enjoy this post. Please don’t forget to visit the Kari’s blog to see what she create with the beads I sent to her.

I signed up to a new challenge The Bead Peeps Swap and Hop; hosted by a wonderful Facebook group that I really enjoy so much. Recently the partners was announced and I have the honor to be paired with a wonderful and super talented lady Nan Smith.
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.
Nan worked as a nurse for 38 years and now she is retired. So she have good time to make polymer clay beads and beautiful jewelry…. and may the Lord gives her much more 🙂
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.
Thats all for now, but stay tuned to my next post. I’ll been “showing” what I’ll be sending to my lovely partner but Shhhhhhh!!! she does not find out. It will be a secret between us!! :))))
Some time ago I bought some waxed linen cord. And honestly I had completely forgotten. Thats why when I saw that Diana P. from Suburban Girl Studio, decided to host a jewelry blog hop using waxed linen cord I didn’t think twice to participate.
So, this is my first time using waxed linen cord for my jewelry design.
For my first design I used Jade Scott‘s strand connector
And my second design…
For this design I used one of my enameled wire pendant with waxed linen cord and czech bead.
Welcome to the most exciting Blog Party in the jewelry/artist designer’s industry…. The 8th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal Date!!!
Today approximately 490 artist and designers enjoy a virtual party when every participant presents their creativity making wonderful jewelry pieces. And everything is possible thanks to the wonderful lady Lori Anderson.
This is my first Party and it was so remarkable. For this occasion I have been honor to participate to this Blog Party with my lovely partner Judy Riggs. We swap beads and want to show you what I sent to her…..
And Judy sent me these fabulous beads ……
The first thing that I see in these beads was the colors. So rich and bright that inspire me, not only to make the BSBP final pieces, but also inspired to play with other colors combination for my own designs, like this flower that I made.
The other thing is my first time to make pieces with lampwork beads. I’ve been hoarding some lampwork bead for a while. I love them but I found that I was having problems to incorporate them to my pieces. But now I have the wonderful time and opportunity to play with some of them. And what better to do with the beads that Judy sent me!! 🙂
This is what I finally create!! 🙂
Don’t forget what Judy Riggs create with what I sent her. Visit her blog here.

Ups, I don’t post anything for a while….sorry for that. I was a little bit busy, specially on my full time job. You can make plans and sometimes the things doesn’t work. :-(. Such is life!!!
Anyway, I was making some news designs for my Etsy shop. I was tried to made a ballerina dress for the Art Bead Scene April Challenge. But I finished with….
A swimsuit pendant !! 🙂 It’s fun, whimsical and adorable!!
I love birds; thats why ArtIncendi logo have a bird design. The other day I was at my parents house and I saw a “Mariquita Puertorriqueña” this adorable bird is a native bird of Puerto Rico.
Thats why I decided to make this fabulous bird toggle clasp. I don’t use a lot the black color for my handmade clasps/supplies/components. But, honestly I really love how does little bird looks.
I easily get inspired by nature. I lived surrounded by flowers and birds and I used that inspiration to create my pieces. Puerto Rico have beautiful beaches too; and the nearest beach it’s about 1 hour and half from my house.
Spring it a wonderful season but I start to feel a sweet summer breeze 🙂 Here in Puerto Rico, we practically have spring and summer season 365 days of the year!!!
So thats maybe the reason that I started to make summer supplies. This is a lovely fish toggle clasp!! 🙂
Ok, this is everything for now. I listed all of this supplies (and much more) on my Etsy Shop. See you there…
Sometime ago I took these flowers pictures with my Iphone…
One is from my garden and another from my Mother’s garden. I am particularly attracted by nature and most of the time are my inspiration. Sometimes, when I see beautiful flowers, I took a picture with my phone and share them through ArtIncendi Facebook; with a special message for my followers.
But for these occasion I get more inspire and create these lovely flower with wire.
These lovely flower can be used like pendant or connector.
I made some wonderful beads sets with more flowers and they are available at my Esty Shop.
