Bead Peeps Swap


My partner is Michelle McCarthy from FL. She is a ceramic bead artist and sells her beads,etc on Etsy at Firefly Design Studio and also at bead shows. She made me the beautiful paisley pendant and also sent along a great assortment of beads and chain to work with. I tried something a little different for me in designing the necklace and I love how it turned out. I think this is going to be a fun set to wear this summer. I can’t wait to see what Michelle has made with the package I sent her. There are several other participants in this swap too, if I find the list I will post later.image

I would also like to thank Linda Anderson for organizing this blog hop/ bead swap. I can’t imagine the job it must be to get the partners all matched up. Sorry my pictures are all mixed up, my blog was not cooperating with me at all today.

    My jaw is literally hanging open – how BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE that you used multistrands to balance out the weight of the focal. WOW! GREAT job!

    Where did you get that clasp that you sent your partner? The bird and nest? I’m kinda a clasp freak. =)
