Bead Peeps Swap & Hop 2015 : From A to Z

Finally, it’s May 2nd!!! The reveal day of Bead Peeps Swap & Hop 2015.

This time my partner is Nicole Rennell from USA. She mainly works with polymer clay and copper, in big and dark color palette. During our ‘get to know each other’ chat, she told me that her hobbies are jewelry making, reading, and traveling. 

It took me sometimes to come up with something special (at least I thought it’s special) for her. Her traveling hobby gave me an idea: I will send her something related with it. 

So I sent her some wire pieces I made. A wire train locomotive, a wire boat, a wire car and a wire plane to symbolize her traveling hobby. I added some green fresh water pearls, and azurite beads as coordinating beads. All in her favorite colors. I was so happy when she said she loves them, since I worried that it might not up to her likes.

A package from Nicole arrived just a few days after she told me she received mine. I opened it and was thrilled o see such combinations. She sent me two electroformed copper over polymer clay focals, some faux sea glass beads, some labradorite beads, and some copper beads.

 
Here are they. The labradorite rondelles, copper beads and white faux sea glass were not photographed because I misplaced them >.<

Silly me. I had a rough idea how to use them and put them aside for later but then I forget where did I put them lol.

Oh and here’s what I came up with this lovely things.

   
A simple necklace featuring one of Nicole’s focal piece: a labradorite in polymer clay.

I made the necklace out of a suede ribbon to enhance the copper color. For the clasp, I used solid copper wire adorned with copper beads and labradorite rondelle. 
 Closer view of the clasp. 
I still have some beads left and will work on them after I find a perfect design for them 🙂 — if you follow my blog or my  FB page you will see that the perfect design I’m talking about might come tomorrow, or maybe next year lol.

Now, please take your time and visit all others participants of Bead Peep Swap and Hop 2015 HERE!! 

Hope you enjoy hopping around!! ^^
