 OMG, It is finally here!!!  The final reveal of all the Wonderful and Fun and Fabulous and Unusual and Pretty and...and...and!!!  Well I  am sure you have the idea!!!  The Very Talented Kristina Hahn Eleniak     [ of Peacock and Lime   fame]    is my Wonderful  Partner!!! http://www.peacockandlime.wordpress.com  We talked about our likes and dislikes and about our styles and found that we were really Really REALLY a lot alike!!!  LOL  We love the same kinds of stones and have similar tastes in color and style so finding a nice selection of beads and bobs was really pretty easy!!!  LOL  I just bought for me!!!                                                                                                                                                                                                        This Blog is really more pictures than anything else.  Each piece has elements of what Kristina sent me.  In some it is the focal or the largest amount of the design.  In others it has more of a supporting role with added sparkle or color.  


This piece the Fairy is the Focal



 In this piece is the base of the bracelet and most of the color as well

In this piece it is the base [in the leather cord] and the color in the window beads and all of the sparkle too



In this piece it is the Brilliant Teal Sparkle



This one has a softer sparkle that is the Czech fired beads Kristina sent me


This one it is everything but the thread!  Isn't that owl Adorable??? 

As you can see I have a lot of pieces left and a lot of fun left to have!!!   I can't Thank Kristina enough for all of the Fabulous beads and such that she sent me!  AND  most of them have sold!!!  So thanks again Kristina!!! 


 This is what I sent Kristina after we talked a bit! 
 If you look closely you will see several similarities!  
We opened them and then I texted her and was laughing at what we had sent each other.  

Blanks and gears and lots of fun color!! 
 This has been a Blast and I have made a new Friend.

Thank you soooo much Linda Anderson and Bead Peeps!!!  

This is one of my FAVORITE SWAPS!!!

Please scroll down some there are more pictures!!!

  25. Hi Kari!!! Thank you so very much!!! I love your style too!!! I still have a couple of bracelet bars and some beads and leather left!!! I really made out like a bandit! In the post above this one where I am showing pics of the wellness center where we have our jewelry? There is a picture that has a necklace in it that has the art deco heart in a double strand of black and crystal. You will know it when you see it. It is on the right side of the pic on the top shelf of the case and it is hanging over the shelf a little. Love you! Be Blessed!
