My partner is Marta Grabalowska who recently moved from Krakow to the US!
Her blogs are http://galeriakota.blogspot.com/ (in Polish) and http://wilkmademe.tumblr.com/ (English version). Marta’s work is different from mine. For one thing, she makes Soutache jewelry and I have never tried the technique. She sent me some pretty soutache cord and a lovely pair of soutach earrings along with lots of pretty beads. I’m looking forward to digging in; here are some pictures of what she sent me. The first one is the focal and clasp.
Here are a couple of pictures of what I sent Marta. I etched some copper for the focal and made the clasp too. I included some of my lamp worked beads and had a good time rooting around my stash for the rest of the beads. I can’t wait to see what my partner makes with them.
