Divya and I chatted about what we wanted to swap and I said I would like authentic Indian beads from her. We talked about color and what we both like and use. I said I didnt work in pinks and gold, and low and behold I made a pink necklace with her beads.
I had a hard time finding beads to use in my huge stash and called on my friend Robin to help me out. I raided her stash for some orange and gold accents. WE ended up spending the afternoon together and had a blast working on our swaps together.
Above is the site where she describes the beads she sent me. She sent me some handmade organza beads that she made herself, a brass leaf with bright colors, a silver component that she painted, a gold button, and ceramic pendant and beads.
Okay so on to the jewelry
The first is the orange piece, Rarely do I work in orange,and Robin had the perfect tassel which I got from her collection. I think it came out great and I used Divya's organza bead which fit in perfectly with the orange beads and gold filligree beads she sent me.
but you get the point lol
Thank you Divya for challenging me this year, I hope you had fun with the beads I sent you
