Well, this was round 7, so I'm sure there will be another at some point!  Only problem is that most of the swappers who participate are returning from other rounds (which is totally freaking awesome Wink), but since most people have sending restrictions, and I try to match givers up to receivers based on what they ask for, everyone who can be matched up kind of already has swapped at some point.  Some have even sent to/received from the same person twice.  Sad  With all of that in mind, I usually space the swaps out about 8 months apart.

Like it? I love it! And I love the next one, too. Abbee was so kind to send a second time because USPS lost the first one - or as we know now they just delivered it secretly!

So I received twice from her, and again there are so many wonderful beads!

All together: Lots of stone, and loads of little metal spacers, bead caps, and beads, seed bead soup, glass beads in black, teal, white/cream and purple, little heart pendants and wire wrapped beads (hearts, too), and paper beads.


There is more metal, I just poured the black ones on top:


Pretty pretty glass beads:


A detail shot of the two stone strands:

I'm thinking of pairing the black ones with the white ones from the first package.

And the embellished beads/pendants:


And, of course, I got two more beautiful necklaces, because Abbee is fantastic! These are totall ydifferent, a rather elegant sparkly one, and a merry little one with millefiori beads that I will have to hide from my daughter. (By the way: Ratfinkz, your necklace was turned into a little necklace and a bracelet within a few hours of receiving them, I hope you don't mind! She wears it very proudly and is quite careful with it. I used a magnet clasp, though, just to be on the safe side...)

The sparkly one in the prett ybox it came in:


And the millefiori one. And see, there is a shell disc and a star, again!


Abbeeroad, thank you very much again, you are very generous and I love everything!

Yay! That's more like what I expect shipping to Germany!

I did ask a friend to make the sparkly necklace for you so I can't claim credit for that one. A note didn't make it in this package as I put it together a bit quicker than the first. It was all taped up by the time I remembered.

Thanks for a great swap everyone!

But the note in the first one was all the more lovely! Handmade especially for me, and so happy!
