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
