About this design:

This was intended as donation piece for a fundraiser. The organizer decided it would make for a wonderful gift for his sister's 60th Bithday. So I will be making another donation piece this weekend! : )

    Becca, you have a special talent for creating great drop focals. I really like how the eye stops at each thoughtfully placed component in this piece. Love how you made the stitched tubes and placed them over the copper one. This piece has a ‘designer’ vibe to me!

    The turquoise stitched tubes are beautiful. No wonder the organizer snapped up this piece for his sister!

    I can see why the woman had to have it for her sister’s birthday gift. I don’t know any of my friends not acquaintances that would not like owning this piece.

    So much varied skill in this beauty. Wonderful design and execution. I especially like the unexpected seedbead tubes combined with the hammered focal.

    Copper and the blues go well together. When a piece gets snapped up before it even goes on display that says it all.
