The Bead Soup Cafe Group did an informal bead swap and I participated. I sent my partner, Jessica Klaaren of Beadful Things, some vintage necklaces and earrings. In return she sent me some Vintaj pieces and some wonderful coordinating beads. All in an under the sea theme. She also included some lush silk cord. In the picture you will see I have added in one of the crystals I won from Art Beads. I think the color goes well. For the first time ever, I am actually contemplating a freeform design. Who woulda thunk it? Me, doing freeform. We will see how it goes.
Thank you, Jessica! I can't wait to get started.
