Today is the reveal for the Bead Peeps Swap and Blog Hop! My partner was Shai Williams. I've "known" Shai in the cyber world for a while now, so was happy she was my partner. This is what Shai sent to me. Please visit Shai's blog to see what I sent her and what she made!
First is a bracelet I made with the bracelet bar, some chain and the blue sea glass type beads from Shai. I used one of my own lampwork beads and some brass filigree beads and Indian glass purple beads. I have to say that I'm really not totally happy with it, and may play around later on when I have more time.
Here's what took me so long to make - this awesome spiral stitched necklace used with the focal from Andrew Thornton!
I really really want to make something with those blue teardrop beads, but can't think of anything yet. Maybe I'll get some inspiration from your designs!
Thank you so much to Shai for being my partner and to Linda Anderson for being the host of this very large swap and blog hop!
Please check out what everyone else made by hopping along over the weekend!
