Earthenwood Design Team Update Part One and Late Studio Tour

  The always awesome Earthenwood Design Team member Gaea Cannaday sent me a link to this devilishly cool bracelet she made with one of my heart charms from the February challenge!  She paired it with one of her Diablo beads and a mix of firey colored accents with off white beads with one dark chocolate bead thrown in for contrast.  Check out the clasp, too.. part of Gaea's recent experimentation with enamel.  I love this piece!  Check out her blog for more of her inspired designs.
