Lori Andersons's No Blog Hop Swap

Woohoo! I received a marvelous selection of seed beads in 6/0 and 11/0 from my so generous partner Kelli Jacobson
I love what Kelli sent I have been wanting to add more 6/0 seed beads and mixes to my collection. Kelli also made some lovely polymer clay beads
In turquoise and her own mix "cherry mango" yummy! That's not all she included some rough cut amethyst that will be gorgeous wire wrapped! Thank you Kelli, I hope you like what I sent just as much!

A Star....

I have looked and looked for this puffy star pattern forever! I finally found it on etsy at Joy Harmon Designs. The PDF was easy to follow with great step by step photos. I chose size 10 delicas for this star.

Collective Creative Canapé

Here, it is April 2, 2012, I am only one day late posting my photos for our swap. The first package of beads my partner sent me disappeared into a black hole at the post office. Karan Parker graciously sent out a 2nd swap package of beads to me which I received 8 days ago. Here is my "soup" from Karan.

And here is what I have created so far....I used a mix of beads I had on hand along with Karan's. I have been wanting to use the bone cat & fish forever!


the red coral along with the aqua coral Karan sent worked together for this ring & bracelet. I am still happily creating from this soup.
Thanks again to Keri Sereika for hosting the Collective Creative Canapé! Check out everyone's blogs for lots of gorgeous eye candy!
