BEAD PEEPS 3RD ANNUAL Swap N Hop Reveals

I am always excited to visit a hop and this one is no different. My partner is Ally Asato
Here is a Reminder of what Ally sent.

Lets begin with the Blue Ceramic Focal.
I created this Necklace using some blue facet gemstones, some red czech glass Pansy beads,czech flowers, silver spacers, and Silverware figaro chain, silverware brass bail from B'sues



These are the coordinating earrings 

Next came the silver toggle, the seed beads, some of the Ikeda Pearls, Silverware filigree brass beads, glass spectra beads from B'sue Boutiques , czech glass flowers, silver disk spacers from Ally and One of the Gardanne Enamel brass components to create this Bracelet

And of course there are earrings to coordinate with Bracelet or Necklace
These earrings are The Gardanne Enamel brass leaves to which I used the pearls Ally sent and added Labradorite gemstone coin beads

Next I took the Main Pink Lavender Lily Pad shaped Enamel brass Focal, and one of the resin beads. I added some Broken Bling, figaro chain,pearls,czech glass created a tassel

  6. I don't think this was much a challenge for you, Gloria.☺️ Everything turned out so Elegant & Lovely! 😍 It has your Vibrant Floral Vibe with Pops of Color!
    I Loved how you accented & centered your crystal component on Gardanne Beads-Lilypad Pendant. The Floral Charmed Chained Tassel adds Great Balance to your Necklace.
    The Blue Gem Necklace with Round Rabbit Charm is so ❤️ly with Coordinating Earrings. I can see you wear this Jewelry Set often!

  10. Wow, I can tell you've been inspired! I find all the pieces beautiful. I am maybe partial to that Gardanne focal you used in the bracelet so I decided it's my favorite :) Love the tassel, a piece with many diverse moods - modern, eclectic and vintage in one! All the earrings are beautiful complements to the main pieces!

  11. You made some pretties for sure! I think that bracelet is my favorite. It's not colors that I would normally wear, but your use of the several strands and the dangles really draws the eye. Beautiful!

  15. Mala beads are very helpful in meditation and very good healers of human body. Most of the sadhu's in hinduism use them for spiritual mantra meditations. Mala beads are of different materials like rudraksha mala, sandalwood beads mala, ebony beads mala etc and also of different size like 108 beads mala.
