Bead Peeps Swap ‘n’ Hop 2017 Reveal

  Today is the day that everyone gets to see what I have been very busy doing.    This year I was paired with the wonderfully talented   Palak Udeshi   from India and received from her some of the most beautiful beads.  I could not wait to get started in doing something with them.  And this is what I came up with.  Even the material for the cord is from her .   I had lots of fun coming up with this design and it was ever evolving  as I worked on itDSCN6827

    I also had a few beads left from what I sent her and I managed to get this done .
