It's that time of year again for the 2019 Bead Swap n Hop!

The reveal date is April 7, 2019.  This year my partner is Valarie Dunsmore from Florida. Here is what she sent me.....
I've got a bunch of goodies...the wheels were spinning out of control while looking through my package.

It's almost time, I cant wait..I'm so's what I've come up with so far.
Here I used the multi-colored pebble stones to create this piece along with raki ribbon.

This piece I used the orange square beads along with Valaries favorite  color green beads, gold chain and the raki ribbon. Sorry this picture is upside down.
Another black n white creation using the square beads

Here Valerie sent these black ebony beads that were drilled on the diagonal,  I found the white stick beads and the idea just clicked!
