Bead soup blog party. Hoarders edition

Hi all! Since I've been sick 5 of the last 8 weeks I am doing the reveal and introduction of my partner all together. Sorry it will be a long read but well worth the wait.
    My partner for the hop is Theresa Fischer of Treesee jewelry who lives in California  which is known for gold and also copper. Theresa sent me a few copper pieces that she stamped.  Theresa   Has a home based business and makes jewelry and dog leashes and works with leather. She loves nature and being outdoors camping and hiking.
check out her blog:

 She also sent me a second package of beads including a mother of pearl shell pendant a few how lite beads, copper beads and a part of a necklace that she had hoarded. She had held on to the mother of pearl pendant with hopes of drilling it, I was afraid to drill it in case it broke so I added a bail to it and used it as a pendant.

I sent her a pendant from Marla's mud some coordinating beads an etched bird copper piece and two polymer clay books that I made. This is Theresa's first swap and I love to send my partner some hand made items along with the required items for the swap for them to play with.  I hope you had. Fun with the goodies I sent

 After much procrastination...... i know a lot of us wait till the last minute lol..... I tackled my beads and got inspired.  I sat at my workbench and looked and looked and thought then went to Michael's and got more beads(my house looks like a bead store already) but they had 70% green tag beads and I found just the perfect beads for the mother of pearl pendant and started to create and viola.... a necklace! Yah.  then I made earrings from the stamped copper and a necklace with the stamped circle pendant.
   I hope everyone enjoyed this bead hoarder's hop!!! Enjoy the eye candy below
