Today is the Reveal of the beads and finished pieces for our Fairy Tale Bead Swap, produced by Lori Anderson.  Check out Lori's blog to see who else is participating in this fun swap.

 My partner is Dana and these are the beads that she so generously sent me.

I love the little Fairy pendant that she sent me.  It even has a cool one cent stamp picture on the back.  I'll show that later, as my batteries died in my camera so will need to  go get some new ones.

Hear is my reveal of what I did with some of Dana's bead assortment.  I am still working on more.

Here are a couple more shots after I was able to replace my batteries.

This is the back of the Faerie Pendant.  You could wear it either way.

The necklace is really great - love that dramatic chain you used!

Pretty Things said...

That fairy pendant? SO MUCH LOVE. I adore it. And the color palette is AMAZINGLY spring, and I would eat that up if it was on my table. In fact, will be playing with that color palette today after I'm done hopping!

Thank you for participating!

Very soft and pretty. I love the two-sided focal, and your bead arrangement provides a nice balance without overshadowing it.

What a pretty soft palette, and that gorgeous little fairy pendant is perfect. The stamp is a cool addition... I love that quirky touch.
