Bead Soup Blog Party, Bead Hoarders Edition

It is finally here!!!!

For this challenge Lori Anderson from Pretty Things paired beader's and we sent each other a focal bead that we were "hoarding" and that were special to us, and we were to make a beaded piece from those beads.
This is a blog hop, so you can visit Lori's Blog to see what all the other bead artists created.
You can see her blog HERE

Thank you so much Lori for making this happen.
I am so glad for this opportunity.

I was paired with Valerie Tilghman from http://artjewelzdimensions.blogspot.com/

The above postcard is from Valerie.

This is what I received from Valerie:
I am so honored by the beads that I received, because they were Valerie's Moms beads.
The fish is so cute and it looks like it made of shell. Such a cute little guy, Valerie also sent me some vintage beads.

This is what I created:

I made a simple strand necklace, I did not want to take away from the beauty of my fishy.
I used 6mm Aquamarine and pink Quartz beads. I also used the shell beads that I received.


This pendant was a bead embroidery and I used cup chain, bicones, and I used the vintage bead that Valerie sent for the center of my pendant,  I also added a ruby drop.

To finish Valerie sent me something else:
Georgia Peach tea, so I am relaxing drinking some peach tea and hopping around to see what everyone else created.
Thank Lori again and thank you Valerie!!

I hope everyone had as much fun as I had.

Happy Hopping!!!
