Every year we join the Bead Peeps Swap N Hop, an event where bloggers and Instagramers are assigned partners, swap beads, create, and post about their experience! This years marks our 4th year in this event which is hosted by Linda Anderson (find her blog here at FromtheBeadBoard).
This year, we were partnered with Joanne Bell of the United Kingdom. Joanne lives in a beautiful part of the country called Durham, and owns Twinkiedinky on Etsy and Facebook. She creates the most whimsical jewelry designs and jewelry components. Her designs often showcase natural elements like dried plants and wings encased in clear resin and metallic copper. You can find her magical works on her Etsy shop and on her various Facebook groups. Don't forget to check out her blog here at JoanneTinks on WordPress, too. Below is just a smattering of the gorgeous designs she's created - there's so much wonderful color and texture! ♥ ♥ ♥
We're really excited to be partnered with Joanne this year, she's an artist that we very much admire.
We can't show off what we sent to our partner just yet, but when we receive her swap goodies we will be posting about that. There will be several of us at Dry Gulch creating designs from our goodies, so be sure to check back when we post the big Reveal this March 26th!

It's been a while since we've blogged, but we're saddled up and ready to go for a big and fabulous year! We have lots in store including new bead and craft shows, more content on our social platforms and much more. Stay tuned as we'll be blogging more about that soon. We started out this year with lots of de-cluttering, painting and rearranging of our pages, be sure to take a look at our newly redesigned website at www.drygulch.com and of course our new look on our blog here. We're making a goal of really livening up our Instagram page too, which you can visit here, but we also wanted to showcase some of the jewelry we've been sharing. Let us know what your favorite design is in the comments below!
