Welcome to the 6th Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal #1! I was one lucky Lady when I was paired with Kim Bender-Hora from kimmykats. She makes really fantastic silverware jewelry so if you are not familiar with her work I highly recommend that you check her out! This is what Kim sent me:
And this is what I came up with:

Now I have to admit that I am not completely happy with this piece. When I signed up for this I did not choose a date so I was assigned the first reveal. I really should not have done that. The anniversary of my daughters birth and death is July 22nd and this year she would have been 6 if she had survived. I know how I get around this time every year and as the date to not only that, but the reveal for this hop got closer, I sunk more and more into a depression. This was such a hard piece for me. I think I played it safe just so that I could get my piece completed on time. Aw Twell, there is always next year, and a lesson well learned about choosing dates. However that being said if I had picked a date the chances of me being paired up with Kim would have been zero to none and that also would have cost me the chance to be able to get to know this wonderful woman.
Kim not only sent me beads, but also some finished jewelry made by her and her husband.
