Pogo Purse

This is what I made with the Pogo Portrait.... The purse is made with some sort of blanket fabric; it needs a lining, but that will have to wait until I get it back from the Fair. I may add some more dangly bits to it, too....

More new stuff.... necklaces & chokers

Tuxedo Cat: Onyx fan, pressed glass, seed beads, glass button.
Hidden Lagoon: Chinese lampwork, fire polished glass, onyx, Bali silver.Wimsy: Artisan lampwork (sorry-- I forget whose), pressed glass, vermeil & GF, seed beads, glass button.
HOT!: Artisan lampwork (don't know this artist, either), pressed glass, GF, seed beads, glass button.
Bumblebee: Artisan lampwork (Mike Poole of Tillerman Beads, UK), pressed glass, seed beads, glass button.
