Barbara DeLisle: Bead Swap!

Whoo hoo! I have received my first entry for our bead swap from Barbara DeLisle in Florida. Barbara sent in 20 beautiful and unusual paper beads, all wrapped separately and labeled as I requested for ease of swapping -thank you!!!

please click on any photo for more details.
Barbara added end caps and wrapped wire around her beads.

Barbara also sent me a hostess gift, a necklace she made . . .

I'm wearing it right now!!

Thanks, Barbara! I often wear the butterfly necklace you created for me 
and gave to me via a previous creative swap. Lovely work you do! 
To see more of Barbara's art, please visit her blog:

The bead swap is due in my hands March 24th and there are 20 of us playing so far. You can still register! Find all of the details and how to register here:

The paper (or fabric) bead swap has 18 participants but is still open to join.

Registration also includes documentation of your swap artwork on the creative swaps blog and return postage anywhere in the world for the beads you will receive in the swap. You can follow my instructions in the lesson or use your own! Make 15-20 beads and receive the same amount in return. Please read the complete swap details and learn how to sign up here:
