Hello readers. I wanted to share something fun my wonderful Etsybead team is doing. The etsybead team mystery bead swap is a way to spark our creativity and have some team fun along the way. The way it works is: Participants were randomly paired up with team members and the partners have to send a selection of beads to each other. These beads and findings are no longer wanted or needed and the partners create new jewelry out of the supplies.
I was paired up with Dg Designs based out of Central, NJ. I was especially excited that I got her since she makes handcrafted lampwork glass beads and was secretly hoping she would send me a few of these beads. Boy, I wasn't disappointed. This is what she sent me to work with:
And this is what I created with the supplied pieces. I used a few pieces I had around here too:
These creations are available for sale in my shoppe. You can also go to etsy and search for "Etsybead team mystery swap" to find other artist creations.
I have another partner I was paired with so be on the lookout for the second round of the mystery swap!
