Show And Tell Of Bead Peeps Swapped Beads....

This post is long overdue. Life has been a crazy nonstop whirlwind and I just don't seem to have time for anything at all. I carved away a few minutes today to post a few pictures of what my swap partner Loretta sent me and of what I sent to her.

 This is what I sent to Loretta. All 4 pendants were made by me included is 2 soldered butterfly pendants, a soldered peacock feather and a pendant made from a vintage tin and set in a painted wooden setting. This pendant was a prototype for me as it was the first that I have made. But I have more in the works.

 And then of course I had to find coordinating beads to match each pendant, so we have some crystals,czech glass,ceramic,vintage glass,vintage lucite,vintage acrylic,vintage wood beads and a silver plated toggle.

This is what Loretta sent to me. There is some leather cording,wood beads, a couple of tigers eye beads,some lamp work beads, polymer clay beads and focal handmade by Loretta, some nylon coated brass colored wire,glass beads, ear wires and a clasp.

Now the hard part I have had zero time and when I say zero I mean zero to work on this swap. I may have a little time today to work in my studio but not much. So please wish me luck in trying to come up with a design and then get it done before the reveal.
