ccc blogcarnival bead swap.... The Big Reveal!

 I was partnered with Niki Meiners a polymer clay artists.... I loved the colour palette she sent me to play with!  I had already put the ends on my 'bronzey' silver silk before I remebered to take a picture... and I never did take pictures of what I sent!
 I made 3 pieces.... a polymer clay focal  which is strung/knotted onto silk ....
& hangs from the free form Peyote 'chain'
The Here's the chain it has a few of Niki's beads  ... but since  I have lots of seed beads & lampwork in  those colours... I had  no problem finding beads for this!
This 'chain' is long enough to be worn on it's own!
The third piece was also free form peyote done around silversilk.... (It keeps untwisting on me!)  I made the ends of green coated copper wire  and then added seed beads to the loops.... I've never played with silversilk before.. I think it has been added to my 'WANT' list....

 This is the first time that Eve has officially modeled anything!
That's everything  except for the cute little enameled hook that I had to make since my silver silk has two loops and no toggle.... oops.... Love the colours in these pieces!

Here's a list of the other blogs!

My first comment got all messed up - sorry about that! What I wanted to say was that I love the peyote chain, and the pretty colors. Good job! Lisa Lodge
