I'M LATE, I'M LATE FOR A VERY IMPORTANT DATE!!!  LOL OK I'm not that late but I am  here now!  BEFORE I GET STARTED, I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO LINDA AND HER ADMIN ON ANOTHER FUN AND SUCCESSFUL HOP!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LETTING ME PLAY!! 
Ok, on to the pictures.  My partner Fay Wolfenden from B.C. Canada, sent me all of the Wonderful beads and bobs in the first pic.  And here is what I did with them.

The first one did is a Sterling Silver and Dichroic piece that Fay made!  I love the focal and did not want to take away from that so I used the Lampwork beads that she sent and just added some color and chain.


This is the next one I made!  I love the colors and the design and again just wanted to accentuate the focal.  So I did a little searching and found a baggie of the perfect colored beads.  Added them , one of Fay's Lampwork beads and some chain and we have this one done!



 I was lucky enough to have time to make a few more pieces on Friday. This is the first one I made!  I love these colors and the shapes.  I wanted to do something to show off how unique and cool they were so I went asymmetrical and added some dyed Howlite and center colored crystals and an angel wing.



This is the last necklace I made.  Fay works in copper and sent me some wonderful pieces.  This one was a Focal/Clasp and I really wanted to use it!  So I used the focal part and added crystals and a dragonfly and one of Fay's beautiful Lampwork beads.  I strung it on sari silk and added the clasp on the back and that one is done!


This is the last piece I made.  I used 2 of Fay's Lampwork beads and added Amazonite, freshwater pearls ad of course a dragonfly, and a  saying tag.

I really hope you enjoyed these!!! Please go see my partner Fay at http://torchfairy.blogspot.com

  4. Hi Robin, You showed Fay's beautiful lampworked focal perfectly in your first necklace. It is my favorite. Good choices on the accent beads that you used with the lime colored focal. Great job using your swap beads.
