This year I decided to start with some beautiful urchin beads by Kathi Mohlman. I purchased them last summer from her etsy shop Earth and Elements Pottery. I used the turquoise & brown urchin beads with the Beaded Bead Sea Urchin I made from Marcia DeCoster's Bead Opulence book.
Take some time to hop around and see what amazing creations other artisans have created. Here is the list of fellow partipants.
Thanks to Lori for hosting this hop!
