Happy New Year!

I'm back in the studio and one of the things I'm working on is another Passover set with an Elijah and a Miriam cup. I wanted to use something different on the Miriam cup this time and came across these lampwork beads from an Etsy Israeli Artist named Meital Plotnik:

Distant Seas
Their color is absolutely luscious, bringing in the azure blue of the sea and the wonderfully feminine deep pink, their shape referencing, at least for me, a timbrel (tambourine).

The shape of the new Miriam's cup is a bit different than the previous, so it will be interesting to put it all together and see the effect. I still need to go out and find a chain. I'm hoping to find one which will be a bit easier to connect.

I've other multimedia ideas rolling around in my head, so stay tuned to the blog!
