Through my jewelry and lampwork beads I have had the good fortune to meet some wonderfully talented artists and a few have become someone I can call a friend. This is the case with Holly McCoin. I meet Holly at a bead store several years ago and now I am happy to say she is my friend. She is a very talented fiber artist. Both of our birthdays are in July and she surprised me with an early birthday present. To say the least I was shocked to receive such a beautiful gift. I had to share it with all of you.
And here it is, my Maudies Bag!
This is the back:
Her details are amazing! It is so much prettier in person than what I am able to photograph but here are some close ups.
She is selling purses on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/holly8 . I am proud to say this fabulously talented woman is my friend.
