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.

  1. Wow !!!! This is fantastic! You have created such terrific collection !!! I`m thrilled , thrilled,thrilled . And I love the necklace you made with that beaded charm :)

    1. I am glad you are pleased. Just sorry I didn't accomplish more. You gave me a wonderful array of choices in textures and wow the colors! it was easy to create just hard on time this time around. Most swaps I use the complete soup. As I use the rest of the goodies I will Post photos and tag you :) You are an awesome partner and have become a good friend <3 Blessings!

  2. Beautiful pieces! I hope you are feeling all better now too.

    1. Thank you Kari, health like creating is an ongoing process :)

  3. Simple and layered is a combination I like a lot as in the first and last necklaces - an awesome combo of color and detail! And I am glad you decided to wear the gorgeous tassel as a necklace and made this thin bright chain for it!

    1. Thank you so much! It just didn't seem right to have it shoved in a purse :) Seed Beads all the way! Yes, I agree layered seems to be one of my mainstays. Thank you for your kind words <3

  4. lovely pieces! love the multi-tier one!

    1. Thanks Alainn! I loved what you turned out with your swaps too! You were a busy girl :) Just lovely!

  5. Your creations are delightful. The openess and simplicity of the first necklace makes it so attractive.
    Each of your designs accents the main componenet so well.
    Great job !

    1. Thanks Mowse! As you know, it isn't hard when the ingredients tell you what they want to be :)

  6. Great work.. I am always in awe of seed beaders as I have no patience with the tiny beads

    1. Thanks Fay! I had more seed beading in mind if my health had only let me, I will have to do them anyway and post an addendum I think ;)
