Well, earrings are the piece of jewelry I prefer to wear and I mostly make, so I picked the invite for this swap immediately.
My partner was Susan Kennedy from Suebeads, a talented lampworker. Just look at these gorgeous beads she makes
I've asked Sue to take a look at my Flickr gallery and tell me which style of earrings she prefers. I already knew she loves turquoise, silver and green, so I've chosen some peppermint and turquoise Fimo and made a pair of both sides textured rings with a texture plate made by me; then just a little touch of silver Inka gold. I've added filigree silver beads and seed beads and this is what I have sent to Sue:
I've added a lucky charm - one of my clowny beads, but forgot to take a picture of it.
I still haven't received the package Susan sent, even if she sent it three weeks ago!!! But I'm sure it will arrive soon!! If you would like to know what has she sent to me, just take a look at her blog here.
UPDATE - 23 March
Yesterday I have finally received my package from Sue. Just look at these gorgeous earrings and she even included some of her beautiful lampwork beads!!! [happydance] How lucky I am!!!
No need to say I had to wear them today at work :-D
