Bead Peeps Swap & Hop 2017

I know the date says Friday but I actually posted Saturday just after midnight!!

Time has come for the Bead Peeps Swap N Hop  Thanks to our hostess Linda Anderson and all her helpers.

My very gracious bead peeps partner was Robin Kae Reed.. My oh my  she did send me a boat load of fabulous and I do mean fabulous semi-precious stones, metal charms, beads,  etc. and I will let the photo do the rest..  so many lovely things !

the beads I sent to Robin

Robins beads to me

these are the pieces that I made.. I added a few of my hand-made findings as well.
Love these turquoise stones.. my birthstone also..

Large Simple Elegant Stone  a statement piece all on it's own.

These are so cool !

Fab green stone & vintage chandelier crystal
This lock opens using a magnet.. fabulous !
More turquoise stones.. may keep this one for myself !
I think these are called daggers. I combined them with some dark blue crystals..strung on black rubber

I like to do lots of wire work.  That is sort of a signature feature  of mine.  In order to keep this blog short and sweet I  will not got into a lot of detail describing how I made each piece (also I do not know the names of all the stones. 
I tried to use at least a good sampling of the stones, etc. that Robin sent..
   Hope you like all of my pieces.

Signed up for Bead Peeps 3rd Annual Swap N Hop... so excited!  International partners will be revealed Friday morning... I am leaving for Mexico very early Saturday morning so will not be able to mail out my beads until I get back on the 14 of Feb.  Just getting a few things together now.

As far as what I like:  love the colors: turquoises, lime green, teals together. and then like oranges, pinks, purples together. And of course black & white.
As for metals my fav is copper, then silver, then black.
Love all kinds of stones, semi-precious in the above colors, lamp work beads.
 Here are a few things that I have made..  just to give you a general idea of what I like.   I can work with pretty much anything !!
