I just checked. I have signed up for 8 exchanges on 3 different forums. What was I thinking? I have to admit, I have always enjoyed the exchanges I have joined. I think that only 2 have gone south aka I never received beads for one reason or another. Other than that, each and every exchange has been a wonderful learning experience and a test of skill. They are wonderful opportunities for growth and development.
What was I thinking? They seemed like fun, and, so far, they have been, but 8 exchanges on 3 different forums! My goodness! What was I thinking?
Well, just let me show you what has come of one exchange.
This is a tube and bicone exchange.
The rules state that each bead submitted must be 2 inches or more.
Do you want to see what I am sending to our hostess for this exchange?
Here they are.
I love this bead! I made it with my leftover nubs.
I also made this bead from scraps of glass.
Although this looks like opal yellow glass, it's dark ivory that I cooked and cooked and cooked. I love the results!
Turquoise is one of my favorite 10,000 colors. This bead is even prettier in person!
I saved the best for last. I was going to send this in, but I have decided to keep it.
Now, I have to wire wrap it and get ready to wear it.
All right, now that's one down and seven to go! Onward and upward, I say! I'll show more results later.
I haven't forgotten the challenge, either. I'm going to start gathering the photos to show.
I hope I have the original one!
