HBBH 3.5: A Very Merry Unbirthday Party!

Marlene and Shelley just couldn't wait for HBBH4, so they slipped in another blog party swap and hop!  A Very Merry Unbirthday!  Paired up with partners we were to exchange bling in our partner's birthstone color(s).  My partner for this party is Ali McCarthy, Northwoods Creative Studio.  My birthday month is February and my birthstone is amethyst.  Ali made this fantastic kumihimo necklace featuring a gorgeous focal lampwork that she made!

This necklace reminds me of...February winters.  So cozy and warm.  It goes great with my sweaters.  Thank you Ali.

Here is what I sent to Ali...Uh oh.  In my haste to send Ali's unbirthday gift, I forgot to take a picture.  Well, she is first up on the party list, so visit her blog to see pictures.  Ali also has an Etsy shop!

What a cool necklace! I love using eyelash yarn in kumi, it gives such a great texture. And a focal made just for you, how cool!

Nice piece, looks like it would be very gentle on the neck. I like the colors.
