Bead Peeps Swap N Hop 2020

The reveal day is finally here!
So, why wait – get, set go ……..

Phew, finally finished! The photo doesn't do the colors justice really, it's such a bright and sparkly necklace! The Lapiz lazuli clasp was my most favourite piece in the goodies Dora sent . Was always wanting to make a friform beaded necklace with all those lovely beads that my previous Swap partners had sent , and this clasp along with the blue Czech beads Dora sent just seemed perfect. 

Another piece that I instantly fell in love with is the traditional Croatian filigree bead. Always admiring the folk costumes around the world, this beauty needed to be showcased in the same traditional  style . So I added some beaded beads in matching colors and created this one.

As always, this year too my endeavour has been to learn something new. Ever since I started taking part in the Bead Peeps Swap and Hop, I have made a self rule to make something I havent tried before. Be it a technique in Bead work or an accessory. Just like new partners in this challenge, I have been blessed to get wonderful bead from Bead artists from all around the World . This year too I had  an amazing partner Trogdora Orensik  - who is also the Grand Prize winner of last years Swap. . My happiness knew no bounds when I got the lovely collection of beads she sent me.I enjoyed working on these beautiful beads and I hope I can create  more from  the lovely goodies she  has sent me . 
As always.I come away from this Swap exploring and learning more of the wonderful Bead world out there. 

Hope to see you soon with some new project

The Bead Peeps Swap and Hop 2020 is here!

The beads have arrived!

Art in beads and threads and more

It’s time of the year again, when the Bead Peeps Swap and Hop takes place. Each year, I have been participating in this fun swap and each year my journey in the wonderful world of beads gets better. There is so much to learn, explore and try in this that I don’t think a lifetime would be enough.
Have met wonderful people who have now become good friends, learnt a lot about different types of beads and explored wonderful techniques creating something from these beads.
This year my partner Trogdora Oresic is from a lovely country Croatia 🇭🇷.  She is a very ardent beader and also the winner of last years Swap . Her beautiful beadwork can be found on her page
  The beads she has sent are absolutely amazing and I love them. All carefully curated, the variety is mind boggling. Also she has included some exquisite embroidered pieces done by her. Just can’t wait to create something new and unique with all these beauties.

Do drop by to see what I made with these

Ciao for now
