Bead Peeps Swap N Hop 2017

It`s time again for yet another Swap N Hop from Bead Peeps, and my third time participation .
I can`t even begin to tell you how excited  I was for this. 
My partner this time is   Rebecca White , a lovely talented beader from Florida. She sent me such gorgeous beads ,that I absolutely love. Here`s what she sent

The combination of turquoise and red being my favorite, it was difficult to decide what to make first. So I started with this simple lovely tassel necklace.  A beaded bead in bright red, highlights the the focal bead sent by Rebecca

 The next necklace I made uses Howlite drops with royal blue seed beads from my stash.  The cotton yarn closure adds a tribal look to this beautiful necklace.I love this necklace as it matches with a lot of sari`s I have.

Another necklace I have created uses gorgeous Superduo`s sent by Rebecca. I had this brass wire component for a few years in my stash, and the shade matches so well with the pendant I have made.

 Another favourite of mine is this lovely blue and red necklace, using faceted blue beads sent by Rebecca . German silver links with beaded bead drops compliment the focal Tibetan bead pendant.

And lastly  made this bead embellished  bangle. Red and blue seed beads interwoven uaing peyote stitch create a decorative look on a simple acrylic bangle.

It has been a fun filled time and a lot of  learning along the way, and I thank Rebecca for sending me such a lovely stash.
Hope you liked my creations. Here`s a list of other participants of the swap. Do drop by to see what everyone has made

  1. Hi Palak, your beaded bead and fringe accent the focal well in your first necklace. The drops collar is spectacular. I agree that the woven brass component shows your stitched focal perfectly. The blue and red necklace is a great statement piece. The peyote stitched strips make that bangle pop. You did an outstanding job using your swap beads.

  11. The blue tribal collar necklace is simply gorgeous and would work great with white, black, ligth blue or green outfits. I also like the modern beaded take on the traditional Indian addigai with the brass tube. great job pallavi

  13. I will start with the bangle because the embellishment is so clever - I am a newbie in seed beading and still discovering how versatile it can be! Your jewelry looks modern and traditional at the same time and would be a good choice both in formal occasions and casual wear.
