BEAD SWAP

Here is what my bead swap partner sent me:

So many pretty beads and 
interesting items 
to work with!
She even made these cute
little envelopes from 
awesome paper
to send some of the
beads in
I knew I would at least
make some earrings and
a bracelet
(I took the easy road and
strung the bracelet beads on elastic)
but had lots more beads 
and cool stuff to work with 
so at the very last minute (tonight)
guess I work best under pressure....
After pondering what to do with the rest
I decided to try my hand
at a necklace
I wasn't sure at first how I wanted
to do it but ended up just
stringing some of the beads
that were left and
then adding this great locket
and then to give it an updated, somewhat edgy look added 
the chains hanging down
from the sides


I had a lot of fun with this
(my second swap)
Hope you like it

Many thanks to Sarah with
My So Called Junky Life blog
for hosting such a great swap

and thank you again
Jayne (my swap partner)with
Mama's Got To Doodle blog
for the wonderful beads and other
neat-o items
