Swap and Hop Reveal🌺

My partner Marianne Baxter sent me several challenges. The first was a focal bead that was made by Debbie Hull. The colors remind me of the sea. I also received two starfish. I think you can probably see or sea the direction I went with the challenge.

Also included in my package were gold tube beads. I had fun with the pink beads and gold tubes making a bracelet. It is nice and light weight for the summer!

There was a fun bag of hexagon crystal beads and a second bag of a mixture of beads. I mixed both with some other crystals and made a memory wire bracelet. I loved using memory wire because I am clasp challenged. I am switching back to either memory wire or magnetic clasps.

Marianne is also studying glass work! She sent me a beautiful pendant and earrings! I would encourage her to continue her lampwork. When you visit her site please give her words of encouragement ! I love the pieces she sent me.




Now I am going to send you hopefully to Marianne’s site.

Swap and Hop🌹

I think I was supposed to give you a peek at my swap! I am going to do that now! My parter is Marianne Baxter an aspiring glass worker. We exchanged really early because she was going on a one month adventure. I believe she was going to take more classes in a boot camp in Florida.
She sent me a focal that she made as well as a lampwork bead from Debbie Hull. I love lampwork beads and I can’t wait to see what Marianne learned in boot camp.
So without further ado, here is my swap from Marianne.
