September COM reveal: Zom-bees!

( Its good to be back – I haven’t posted in 2 months… Sigh. )

And its time for the September reveal of the Component of the Month over at Art Elements. This month  – Laney has managed to combine adorable and charming as only Laney can. May I present her lamp work “Zom-bees”…

Laney's Zom-bees

The start of it all this month! Lampwork bee beads by Laney!

I knew right away that I wanted to wet felt a flower, maybe a brooch. I mean The season is changing – won’t is feel like Fall soon?

So in the interim – my friends and I had a “Girl’s Bead Night” as we do… But hosted by Marsha – it morphed into a felting project. It was the eve of the Autumnal Equinox, and I even baked pumpkin pie. I was trying to usher in Fall even though it was in the high 80’s…

I took ZERO pix during the evening. Food, friendship, laughter… ( Thanks to Lisa for the banner photo! ) Heres the  end result:

The finished lovelies!

When I got home I realized – like the lightbulb over one’s head – that my COM was in my hands.


I love the colors together!

My Zom-bee!

With wire tongue…

I work hardened a copper wire to form a spike. I coiled a little “sproing” for my bee. With a wire tongue of sorts and a little bending – he was in place! I love the aqua set off amongst the complementary curly locks.

So – I get to enjoy this little fellow til winter comes! Please take a look at the results from my AE team mates and out guests this month:

Team – Lesley  Watt  –  Jennifer Cameron  – Jenny Davis-Reazor – Caroline Dewison– Cathy Spiey Mendola – Laney Mead

    This is one of my favorites Jenny! I narrated the addition of the zombee in my head with a “SPROING” – it just seems to fit in his vocabulary!
