I made one final piece to end out the month. I was inspired by Molly Schaller's necklace tutorial in the Fall 2010 Stringing magazine, but changed it up a bit. I kept the wood, but that's about all. On one side perches a green polymer clay bird by Barbara, capped with lampwork disks, and on the other, a cluster of glass flowers. Gunmetal chain keeps the rest simple.
And just for YOU, my awesome readers, Barbara has generously donated a set of beads from her "Whisper" collection.
You want 'em, don't you? Well, here's how you get them!
1) Favorite Barbara's blog, http://secondsurf.blogspot.com/ for one point.

Then comment and tell me what you did!

Good luck! And thank you, Barbara, for being my inaugural Cup of Bead Soup Featured Artist!
