2017 Bead Peeps Swap n' Hop: Getting Started!

My partner this year is Katy Heider author of onthepondcreations.blogspot.com blog.  Katy has made a few bead embroidery cuffs shibori ribbon that are just gorgeous.  Her other beaded creations are just as beautiful as well.  She sent me a wonderful selection of goodies to bead with including some shibori ribbon!  She even had enough leftover to make herself something with the same beads.  I am rather curious to see what we each make with the same materials.




Here is a pic of what she sent to me.  Shibori silk (Aria Design Studio, Etsy), lampwork discs (Taneres, Etsy), seed beads, fire polished rounds, and a clasp by BeadSwede (Etsy).  Isn't that rusty wine colored silk just divine?





The picture on the card was taken by Katy as well.

Now I am ready to get started on a design.  Cuff, pendant, earrings?  All will find out on April 8, 2017!

2019 Bead Peeps Swap & Hop Reveal!

To my Peeps: I think as I get older, sickness lasts longer. Everyone is better now and down to sniffles.  On to the good stuff. My partner for this years' Swap & Hop was Dain Schlegel of Dainty Designs.  However, she is recovering from a surgery and wasn't able to get beads to me.  I hope she gets better soon.  So Linda Anderson set me up with an Angel.  Krafty Max sent me a whole lot of beads. Beads on strings, beads in tubes, stone cabochons, fused glass pendants, and Czech beads, rounds, and crystals. Although, I didn't use all of the beads, I did manage to put together a few pendants and UFOs. The pendant above is one of the stones I worked with. Here are the beads she sent: Here is a pendant made with a few blue and white stones from KM. It's finished, I just need to bead up a rope. This is supposed to be a Mini Mountain Girl bracelet (Regina Payne), and I used to small purple stone beads from KM. Thank you Krafty Max for the bea

Art Charm Exchange, Auction and Reveal!

Add caption The Art Charm Exchange hosted by Jennifer Cameron, Glass Addictions .  The purpose of the Art Charm Exchange, other than the opportunity to swap beautiful charms, was to make an extra charm to be auctioned off to... Beads of Courage !  The theme was laughter.  I agonized over this for several days before I buckled down and made the charms above.  I just used beautiful art beads from my collection, crystals, and a shrink art charm.  This was my first foray into art charms.  After I mailed them out to our wonderful hostess, I began to think about other things I could have done.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I cannot remember where all of the art beads came from, but I do know some came from Juli Cannon of Julsbeads , Carolyn Harmon, Miami Valley Lampwork Bead Association , Janel Goolsby/ JeraLunaDesigns , and a few artists with Ebay shops.  Thank you Jennifer for introducing me to a fun project and a wonderful charity. These are the charms I received: List of Parti
