Pantone Swap Beads

I participated in the Pantone Swap hosted by Lori Anderson. I had a "oops moment" today when I realized I did not take a picture of the beads I sent. Ah well too late no, lets talk about the beads I recieved!

I was paired up with Susan Sheehan and I have to admit I was pretty tickled. I roomed with her and Deanna Chase (great author by the way!) at the Gathering and had a great time with them! I still think we are three of the quietest sleepers ever, but that's besides the point.

I am so excited about what she sent me! First off I'm battling a nasty flu, and tomorrow is my birthday so her goodies came at a perfect time! I love the ring. LOVE IT! It's a interchangeable ring with a clear cz in the top and one of her flower beads, I think it is incredibly cool and very sweet of her to send it. She also sent a set of pretty whispy green disk beads and some of her smaller flowers in a chocolate brown. I see something made out of these in my future, I'm really liking them.

The goal here was to swap beads in the current pantone colour palette and I think she really hit the nail on the head. 

Thanks Susy!

You are so welcome! It was great fun putting them together. I love my Nicker beads. I have the perfect bracelet in mind and look forward to the project. Thank you for swapping.
