Spring Swap


My online team - ETSY BEADWEAVERS TEAM - had organazided a friendly swap between the members.

It is always nice to get gifts, especially from talented artists as the EBW memebers. This was also an opportunity to see closely other techniques of beading.

My gift was from Ellen of Glimmerstone.

She made me this bead embroidered purple bracelet. This is a perfect gift for me because I don't do bead embroidery. I have unfinished embroidered pendant waiting for me over a year now. And I also love the deep purple colors.

Isn't the bracelet gorgeous?

Want to see the beautiful pieces swaped? check Christina Wilson's blog for a picture of all the participating artists.

Ocean Breeze: Crystal Rivoli Beaded Necklace


This necklace has been created for the Etsy Beadweaver's (EBWC) April Challenge. The theme of this month's challenge is "Light as a Breeze".

The sparkle of the exquisite Swarovski rivolis and their changing colors are constantly changing, always beautiful, in the color of the litle drops of ocean water, carried by the ocean breeze and sparkling in the rising sun.

Please visit the EBW blog between the 9th and 15th to view all entries and vote for your favorite piece.
