Totally Twisted!

OK...I FINALLY picked up Kerry Bogert's book, "Totally Twisted", and I just LOVE it! 


If you aren't familiar with Kerry and her work, she is an absolutely FABULOUS lampwork bead artist whose beads are both beautiful and whimsical.  Her blog ( is great as well - check it out!

I love the book so much that I've decided to work my way through all of the projects, putting my own spin on them.

Here's the first project I finished, "Twisted Love" that you can find in my etsy shop:

Now, those of you who know me know that I am a copper freak.  I wanted to use all copper for this first project, so the presence of brightly colored glass beads and wire are notably absent in my version of "Bang Gals".  I incorporated one of B Heart Ranch's fun copper heart buttons and one of my favorite copper beads from Rings and Things.

On to the next project!

Oh, I love this! The heart bead is fabulous and I really like the wrapped coiling. Can't wait to see the next project.
