Bead soup hoarders edition reveal

Welcome to my reveal.


Firstly a huge thank you to Lori Anderson for going all out and getting us all back together swapping.
  
I didn't really get to show you the wonderful beads my swap partner Elaine Robitaille sent me,so here they are. 
Some beautiful polymer clay pieces from Elaine! A hoarded bead from Michaela Pabeschit, pretty glass flowers from Fran Davis Dragonfire Studio, lamp work from Cheryl Harris




 

The first bead I used was a pretty lamp work lentil bead as my focal and sat for a while pondering what i should do with it.
Then whilst going through my stash of beads i came across some pretty pink spacers which complimented the pink on the lentil. 
Add to those some lovely tiny agate and chain along with a previous swap item a lovely leather feather from (Rachel Mallis @Mint Monarch)

And i finished one necklace:



Next i decided to use the lovely vibrant flower lamp work and turned them into some simple earrings.






I made a flat headed silver pin to fit through the centre of the flower so i could hang them as simple earrings.
I have started other pieces but not completed them so feel free to pop back or visit my face book to see them soon.  https://www.facebook.com/pale.mooncreationUK/

Partner introduction

Bead soup Partner intro. 


This year i told myself i was not going to enter the Bead soup swap!

Then Lori Anderson the wonderful founder of the Bead soup swap changed it up a gear!

This year we were encouraged to swap a bead that we have hoarded, something special that we kept popped in a box (in my case) that we might use one day (yeah right!)

So i jumped in and signed up and was partnered with Elaine Robitaille who makes the most fabulous beads and more from polymer clay!
