Bead Peeps Swap n' Hop 2017

 Today is the day! The blog hop and reveal party! Just reposting the beads I sent (to the left) and what I received (on the right) before we get started.  My partner this year is Lori Schneider.  She sent me some great stuff, so let's go! 

With some of the turquoise-esque glass I made a bracelet with glass beads and copper.

 With the silver glass drops I made a pair of dangle earrings.  I intend on making a matching necklace, but I need to go chain shopping first.  Everything I have is either too large or too delicate.

I love theses earrings! I paired brass flower stampings with the enamel butterflies.  

Now on to the necklace. I seemed to be stuck on the blue/copper color scheme, so I went with it.  I used the blue/green glass beads along with one of the double sided focals and some glass beads from my own stash for this one.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.

I hope you all enjoyed my contribution to the blog hop.  Now go look at everyone else's!
