When I arrived home yesterday I found, to my delight, a package from Kelly Hosford Patterson.
This is the third annual Bead Peeps Swap n Hop. Linda Anderson again organized it. Linda matched the participants with partners. We sent each other beads to create jewelry. My partner is Kelly Hosford Patterson.
Kelly sent me a very cool variety of beads and other items for making jewelry. She included some beautiful sari silk, pearls, and a copper key-shaped finding. The focal piece is raku, made by WondrousStrange.
This wonderful assortment presents several challenges for me. How shall I use the sari silk? The focal piece is a cabachon. How will I turn it into a pendant? How will I use the key-shaped copper piece? The reveal will be on April 8. It’s time to get busy!
