Beading Daily Necklace Swap

The reveal for the first beading related swap I was into finally came today. I had so much fun with this swap and already signed-up for the next one.

My partner is Melinda from Alaska, who's into bright colors. I found some striking beads in my stash so I concentrated on them... and here's what I came out with.
Necklace and Earrings Set for Melinda of Alaska
Techniques: tubular peyote and stringing
Materials: freshwater pearls, turquoise gemstones and seed beads
My sendee partner is Lois from Utah and she made me this fabulous piece! I love it and had to wear it once I got it. I seldom do wirework in the past, but I can see myself wireworking in the near future.
Necklace from Lois of Utah
Technique: basic wirework
Materials: Mother of Pearls, bicones, and freshwater pearls
As for these wirenames, I had to asked Billy (Master of Wireworks) to make them for me. Aren't they adorable? I'm planning to use them on a special project so stay tune. Made of sterling silver and copper wires. Thanks Billy and Pam!

Have a great Tuesday all!


  1. Aren't swaps fun? I love seeing what everyone comes up with.

    Love the wire names, too--aren't you lucky to have such a good friend to make them!

  2. Thanks for dropping by Michelle!

    Yes, swaps are addicting! LOL I can't wait for my other swaps to arrive in the mail.

    I finally added a chain this morning on the silver wire name.:)


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you so don't hesitate to drop me a line or two.
