|Kaz Baildon's beads|
Lesley Watt is a very talented bead artist from Doset, United Kingdom. She has a wonderful blog called the Gossiping Goddess. Don't you just love the name of her blog! I have admired her jewelry in her Etsy shop. She also makes gorgeous beads. Her very talented bead making friend Kaz Baildon recently had a major overhaul of her studio to make way for some new projects she is planning and in the process she destashed a huge haul of lampwork beads in Lesley's direction. Lesley being the generous person that she is held a drawing and set up a blog hop. The recipients of the beads will use them to create a piece of jewellery, accessory or ornament and share this at a blog hop on Wednesday 12th December.
I have been drawn to receive free beads and take part in the design challenge on December 12th.
I am very excited about it!
UK Inspiration Challenge sponsored by the UK Blog Team. The UK blog team challenged beaders to design a piece of jewelry or a jewelry component inspired by one of their home towns (or home counties!).
|Dorset, Edinburgh, Bath, Isle of Wight, Liverpool, South Hampton are represented in this collage.|
They posted a photo that represented the areas that they are from and we could select one area as our inspiration. I selected the Isle of Wight because I knew less about it then the other areas. This called for some research! I found a photo of the Isle of Wight to serve as my inspiration for my jewelry.

I hope you will visit my blog on November 12 to see my piece. Right now it is a pile of beads on my table! Will I finish it on time? What will I create?
