I was paired with Michele Escano, who sent me a lovely polymer clay flower focal and an assortment of crystals, cloisonne and brass to go with...a great mix. The flower focal was innovative...it was layered on top of a brass filigree piece. I loved it, but was a bit flummoxed as to how I wanted to proceed....there was only a little of the filigree showing around the piece and I wanted to dangle something from it.

After a bit of procrastination and thought, I decided I was going to try and make it bigger by layering it onto another base. I chose copper and went about cutting, sanding and texturizing a flower shape to rivet Michele's flower onto...it worked!
Now, your job is to go and visit the other artists who participated this time...I am sure they have created some fabulous pieces...I can't wait to go hop myself!
