We're working on our designs for the big reveal this Friday, we're really having a lot of fun playing with all of the beads and handmade components our partner Joanne sent us! Speaking of, below are a few photos of the fabulous goodies she mailed us from the UK.
Joanne owns TwinkieDinky on Etsy, and she specializes in making silk-screened butterfly wings and polymer clay leaves and many more creative components. She sent us a collection of her wings and leaves, and Czech and pewter beads. We love the fun ribbon and fabric she wrapped our goodies in too!
Below is our Swap we sent to Joanne. We mailed off a collection of copper and green components with our handmade in-studio lampwork, stamped pendants, copper, Aventurine and even real Monarch butterfly wings from our Ranch (our wings only come from butterflies that have died from natural causes). We can't wait to see what Joanne makes with her Swap components!
Be sure to check back this Friday for the big 2018 Bead Peeps Reveal and hop to all of the blogs that are participating this year. Seeing all the different designs beaders and creators do with their swaps makes this Blog Hop one of the most inspiring Blog Hops of the year!
Have a wonderful and Happy Easter!!
