|Borrowed Etsy Picture of Golem Beads|
Lori McDaniel Anderson of the Pretty Things blog andBead Soup Cafe (Facebook) is hosting the Bead Hoarders Swap this year! I love her Bead Soup Swap Parties! This year's challenge was to send our partner a bead or beads that we have hoarded...and nothing else but a letter. A letter detailing any details of why this bead was hoarded.
My partner this year is Shai Williams of the Shaiha's Ramblings blog. She is from Tacoma, Washington and her jewelry designs are available in her shop--Shaiha's Designs. The picture above is my favorite and only set of striped Golem beads. I have been hoarding them for several years and they are now in Shaiha's creative hands-- along with some other stuff. I love and miss those beads, their color, how they look and feel.
The Bead Hoarders package from Shai arrived in yesterday's mail!
