My swap partner is Ann Rishell, a bead artist and architect from Arizona. She sent me an absolutely incredible package of seed beads, pearls, Swarovski crystals, silver components and an incredible Venetian glass bead and clasp!
I completely forgot to take a picture of the beads I sent to Ann, but you can see them if you take a look at her blog, My Critical Eye.
This is all part of the Bead Soup Blog Party, created by jewelry artist Lori Anderson. So now I have until June 19th to get going and create something with all these lovelies! And wouldn't ya know it, Ann just happened to pick some of my favorite colors for me to work with. This is going to be so much fun!
