Oh my dear beadelicious friends, wait to you see what Killiam Creative sent to me! I'm such a spoiled girl and you're all going to be filled with "Oohs" and "Aaahs" over the beautiful package! There's so much goodness that I've had to break it down into sections. Please be sure to click on the thumbnails to see the detail shots of all the prettiness.
The Pearls & Shells
The Glass, Fire Polished Glass, Czech Glass & Crystal
The Metal Spacers, Bead Caps, and Charms
And then the crafted goodies! Killiam spoiled me by building two pairs of earrings based off things on my wist. The first is a nearly identical copy of a pair of earrings I've loved a while now. The beads are such a deep luscious red and catch the light so well.
The second pair is actually based on a bracelet made of labrodite and garnets. She swaped the garnet stones out for a nice deep amethyst crystal, and the results are stunning. I wore them with a pretty purple dress today and got lots of complements!
And I got one of Killiam's beautiful stick pins!
Plus, she sent me a Beadalon tote bag! It's already in my stack of reusable grocery bags in the car!
Thank you so very very much Ms. Killiam! I'm so in awe of your package, and I'm so in love with all of my new goodies, that I can't even decide where to start with building new pretty sparklies! You are such an amazing partner! Every time I run one of these swaps, it does my heart so much good to see just how amazing generous my fellow Craftsters are. Thank you for making my day dear!!!
