http://www.prettythingsblog.com/ ) As I said in my last post my partner for this bead exchange is Cris Peacock and since she has received her beads I can post what I sent her. There are two pics of the focal because both sides are very different. This beautiful lampworked bead was made by the very talented Jeff Barber( http://www.lakesideartglass.com/). I covet his beads so it was hard to let this one go. I am looking forward to seeing what Cris does with it. I also sent a strand of green stones that I forgot to label but I think they are serpentine. Green glass pearls,Swarovski bicones,and faceted drops complete the green that I sent. For the purple I included AB glass rounds, more Swarovski bicones, and striped purple glass in several shapes. I added white cats-eye for the white stripes in the focal. The brass toggle clasp I bought from Lori herself. I included brass chain too. There is one more filigree piece that didn't make it into the pic too. I hope Cris has fun with what I sent.
