Today is a day that I have been waiting for...well what seems like forever. It's the reveal for the second annual Swap-N-Hop. Just a reminder of how it works. Two jewelers are matched up and we send each other beads to work on. My partner this year is Kristina Peck and she sent me a delightful selection of beads to work with.
Hard to believe that this is her first swap. I just love that polymer leaf. Also included were some gorgeous jasper, Czech glass and glass pearls.
And here is the assortment that I sent her way. I can hardly wait so see what she came up with as there are several different directions to go.
And now it is time for my big reveal. The leaf focal that I received was rather large so I decided to make it a longer necklace. I wirewrapped up the jasper along with the Czech glass and added in some snakeskin jasper and pewter links. It is finished off with a lovely pewter leaf clasp.
Now that you have had a chance to check out my design, be sure to hop around to check out all the eye candy. And since it has been traditional for me to give away something on this type of hop,I will be giving away this lovely primitive horse necklace. Be sure to leave a comment about what you think of my design. Or how your weekend has been going. Or the funniest thing your pet has done. Oh well, you get the idea. Now go forth and hop.
