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 beads. 💖 She's one of the participants too! So get to hopping!
