Did you see what my friend made?

In the Dec/Jan 2011 Issue of Beadwork, I was asked in their contributer question about the beader that I'd most like to know and learn from.
My choice was Caroline Fung because of her amazing versatility.
She does everything!
She does bead embroidery, metal clay, she paints her own cabochons...and she does it all so well.
Well, soon after that issue came out, she wrote to me and asked me to send her my physical address.
Well, I am sooo glad that I did, because she sent me this:

Amazing, no??
She made everything....dyed the lace and made the butterfly from metal clay. It is truly a stunning piece and I'm so happy to own it!
Thank you, Caroline!

(Oh, and by the way, she said she painted the cab to look like me!! How sweet is that?!)

  7. Oh Marcie, I can only imagine the look on your face when you opened that special package. That is truly an amazing work of art. What a sweet way for her to thank you. I have admired her work ever since I first stumbled upon her blog. She is indeed an inspiration.
