Another coming together and creating- Bobbi Ann Cook

I love it so much when I give some one something and they take it , do all the work, and make it so much better than it was before.

My dear friend Bobbi Ann Cook is a sweetie I met on bead-space.

Here is her Bead-Space profile. She is selling beautiful amulet bags there for almost nothing. Check it out http://bead-space.com/bobbianncook

She is a giving and caring woman and a jewel in my life, and I thought this is before she did this!

She took this little bead and turned it in to a beautiful focal piece on a work of love and art.

The bead color is achieved by putting a thin layer of Baja blue Pinata ink over Pearl White Cernit. Then it is stamped with a rubber stamp and Gold Pearl-ex ink. I add the cap embellishments in Champagne Cernit, Bake and antique with Ne-Opaque brown.

Howard carries all of those products: http://www.clayfactory.net/

It frames the bead nicely and is fashioned after medicine and amulet pouches, which I absolutely adore.

Ancient peoples used to put their little treasures and magic pieces in them and carry them around their necks and close to their hearts. We could all use a little good JU-JU, eh?

She also made this beautiful hanging crystal for Madi when she was born!!

Bobbi is carrying on a tradition in her family and honoring her mother in her beadworks.

Do yourself a favor and go visit her and her gallery of work on Bead-space.


Bobbi also has a blog now!! Congrats Bobbi, welcome to blogland!

  4. What are you doing awake at this time of the night?

  5. I am working the night shift of our project implementation. Argh! I and another analyst are the only ones in the entire 8th floor! It is very quiet right now. Knock on wood**
