Productive Day with Petra #3

About this design:

If any of you have ordered from Petra at ScorchedEarthonEtsy, you know she sends awesome freebies. These 2 pieces were a pleasant surprise. :)


Petra's pieces. Czech glass. Lots of swirls with Vintaj Parawire. btw: I've tried other brass wire, and the Vintaj is SO much better! go for it!

    Julie, you found the perfect use for them! :) I am stockpiling my freebies to possibly put them all (or most) on one necklace. :)

    Sadly — or happily — I have WAY too many freebies which means I have ordered WAY too often. I just love to look at them. I’m not willing to part with them. Yet… :)

    These are my next Petra project! They are called Gray Lustre… SO SO pretty! I matched them with a soft lavender-grey turbine. I’ll get to them soon and share them with you… :)

    OOOOOO! Love this!
    Just so you know, thanks to you Julie and Becky, I finally took the leap and made my first purchase from Petra several days ago. (Now I gotta’ wait for them….sigh)
    Julie, I got some of those Grey Lustre drops too! Love that you got spikes too. Can’t wait for your next design!

    I just got my first order from Petra last week, and was so pleasantly surprised by all the little extras!
    Love how you’ve worked with yours here. I sketched some omega and inverted-omega wirework ideas for earrings….you’ve demonstrated that they can be great as a scaffolding for a pendant, too!
