The Beads have arrived!


          Waiting excitedly and with a wee bit of impatience , the goody bag of beads has finally arrived from my partner  Jami Shipp , for the  Bead Peeps "Swap n Hop" challenge . Being the first time that I`m participating in such a challenge , I`ve been hyper about everything to do with it , from getting to know my partner , to posting my goodies for her , as well as getting goodies and the jewellery ready before the deadline. I think I`ve bugged her in this excitement and driven her nuts especially since she has not been keeping well. Sorry for that Jami !
  Anyways, once I got the goody bag  , I`m thrilled at what she sent me . A lovely Jasper cab that has been cut by her friend , a copper clasp made by her , and seed beads in different sizes.

 Here are the pictures of what I sent her . A variety of beads in different materials  , finding , focals  and a beaded tassel that I made a couple of years ago . The photos are not very good ones though as I took these at the last minute, all wrapped in plastic bags , before shipping at the Post office, as an after thought .

 I hope she likes them and has as much in using them , as I had in gathering them for her . Just can`t wait to see what she makes from these .

Do drop by at the reveal date to see some beautiful eye candy !

Beaded flowers!

Welcoming Spring Season, a pair of beaded flowers in vibrant shades of blues, yellows and greens , highlighted by pure white seed bead outlines . Can be used as pendants , or a lovely brooch!

 I created this pair when I was experimenting with a design for my entry in the contest I took part recently . After making both , I opted for the blue round one to be the focal for my necklace that you saw in the previous post . Here`s the finished necklace that I sent for the challenge

Now I`m working on the second flower and will post the completed project soon. 
 Till then  keep smiling........
