Bead Peeps Swap and Hop Reveal! Late for the Party, Not Short on Fun!

So naturally, I was excited to get involved in another "Bead Soup" so of course, I signed up! Then realized it wasn't 'Bead Soup'... saddened at first, but also knowing another chapter had to open I turned the page and gladly met my new partner Pallavi Asher,  as she excitedly informed me it was her first swap.

These are the things she sent me. Sorry, I cheated and used my partner's photos for what she sent me and what I sent. I have been ill, and forgetful.

The Blue floral beads are the stars of this show accented by the wonderful leaf charms with cute ladybugs nestled on them. Multi-tier darkened silver chain just seemed to call for the job. It sports a toggle on the back.

This guy was fun! I fell in love with this one and knew that if no other beading got done in this swap I had to at least do a RAW chain so I could wear him as a necklace instead of just as a key chain. I added a bead to be the toggle. He was hand beaded by my lovely partner - Isn't she talented? I will wear him with pride.

Last, but not least that lovely shell piece... I added some of my own MOP and silk of varying thicknesses to strand and function as a toggle. TADA!

What I sent Pallavi Asher

Let's go visit the rest of the bloggers now too...

Thanks Linda Anderson for hosting and organizing this event. It takes a lot to put these things together.
