Pictures! I received last night but I got home super late and I am just taking my rather poor quality photos Sad

Here is the soup, mostly sorted: Nice mix of glass, spacers, metal beads, shaped glass and charms! Some sweet porcelain and other stuff too.




My lovely finished jewels! I am really into asymmetrical earrings lately and I got some LOVELY examples of them..I especially love the shooting stars! I think those will be worn to work tomorrow Smiley Also a cool turquoise necklace and other sweet earrings, a polymer (?) pendant and others. She also drew me  a lovely Frog Prince card but his picture did not come out very good in the photo Sad




The ultimate though, is this incredible wireworked paisley pendant! The theme (I love paisley), the colors, the workmanship...AWESOME!!!



Such a great haul!


THANK YOU puamelia!!!

So its a bit delayed, but I want to show off my awesome bead soup from Krafty_Karasu! I love all the beads, she definitely got my favorite colors right (just guess, you'll get it)! I love the whole thing, and I haven't had time to dig through it all yet, but my friends have! The little separate pile in the top corner is getting mixed with some gears and such and turning into a memory wire bracelet for one of them... I really had no say there, its just happening! Anyway, on to pics of the awesome beads I got!



Look at all the cool stuff! Lava rocks, metal bits, pearls, and lots of red and black!

Here's a close up of the middle, just to get some detail:



And the awesome beaded bracelet! It fits perfect!



Funny story about the bracelet, I didn't realize it was two toned until I looked at the pictures on my computer. I really need to get better lighting in the house, both times I wore it it was completely dark out... But as soon as I found out I was like "two toned, really? That just makes it ten times cooler!"

Anyway, thanks Krafty, I love it all!

I'm so glad you like your soup!  and THRILLED that the bracelet fits so well!!!  don't feel bad about not realizing it was 2 toned though.  I had the same problem while making it!  lol.  it was a tad difficult to keep track of what color went where sometimes making the center portion.  Roll Eyes  but it worked out in the end!  Grin

you're welcome!  Grin  Grin  Grin

You are welcome April! Glad you like everything... I saw the paisley pendants on your pintrest and just had to make one! Now I need to make one for myself, hehe.

Yes the blue face is a polymer pendant someone else made and much as I love it, I thought you might love it more. The porcelain and the cloisonne are also ones I love but I've had them forever and I figure I should stop hoarding them lol. As I said, I am still in moving mode, which includes purging and sharing.

Don't feel bad about that at all, the lighting in my house is extra super crappy... I can totally see it when I wore it to work today! And I love how the middle second alternates, I was staring at it for far too long today...

Here are my goodies from my awesome lunch with Tero.  :0)

She told me she was bringing me a surprise, but look at the lovely presentation.  If I could have jumped up and down without looking like a fool, I would have.  I had already swooned over the bookmark made by jennie, which I LOVED, but I have to admit I love this one more.  Because its rainbows, and because its mine.   Tongue Grin
Then opening the box:

Oh my gosh, its a whole bunch of little surprises everywhere!
From the animal kingdom...

Yes, mermaids count there too.  See the little hedgehog?  No, probably not.  Its the bead in the middle, the smallest.  The little face, is that not the coolest?

All the charms... so many little details.....

Clasps, findings and other metal doodads.  I LOVE that copper kitty clasp!

A view of some of my favorites.  So many things are just so unusual...  The beads on the left are rose and jasmine beads from Jerusalem.  They work sort of the same way wearing pearls does, except by smell.  I am going to be making something special with them soon.  And of course the beetles' wings, which I've never seen.  (No beetles were harmed in the process of this swap... Cool)

A closer look at the rest of the beads.  So many interesting bits, my mind goes reeling with ideas. 
  I feel so lucky I had a partner I got to meet with.  All swaps should be as cool as swap, shop and lunch!  I'm sure not everyone here has ever been close enough to meet with a partner, but this is Louisiana, it could happen to you!  I was so surprised to see that Tero lived so close that I read over the city in her questionnaire a bunch of times before putting 2 and 2 together.  I had so much fun, Tero!  Thanks so much!  I so look forward to craft or lunch again whenever it happens!   And thank you Jennie for organizing and pairing me with 2 lovely partners.   Cheesy
