    That is the great fun of these swaps–getting things you wouldn’t buy yourself or think to use together. I’m glad you found inspiration to do those beautiful beads justice.

    Those focal beads are gorgeous and I love that you admitted they were quite a challenge. I love how you ended up using them and making them “your own.” The turquoise behind the blue glass is perfect. So unusual and fun to keep looking at. Nice touch with the stick pearls on the earrings!

  12. Jeanne says:

    Beautiful job. I love your creativity!

  13. Denise says:

    That main piece is quite the stunner! All the beads just seem to go perfectly with the focal beads. What wonderful creativity you have!

  14. Hi Nicole, The focals that you received are really lovely. Using the turquoise behind The lampwork was very clever and it enhances to color. Cool earrings. Wow your statement necklace is wonderful.

  15. Elisabeth says:

    Fantastic pieces – really like how you made the different shapes work for you.

  16. I like that your last necklace’s versatility will make it fun to wear, and your other pieces are lovely, too. Best of luck with your Etsy shop.

  17. It’s really hard to tell that flowers are not your thing! 🙂 Your pieces are gorgeous! The first one is my favorite, just wonderful!

  18. Wow! That last necklace is a showstopper!!! I like the other two but that last necklace is incredible

  19. Beautiful! I love that you can wear the second necklace different ways. Cheers!

    Not much of a flower petson either. But i love what you did with everything. The purple vase beads just make the flower stems just pop. And the piece with the turquoise piece backing one of the blue beads…I would actually wear that. Great job breaking out of your normal style.

    Those beads are amazing! I probably would have been a bit stumped, too, but you really did a beautiful job with them. That last necklace does remind me of an Easter Bonnet 🙂 Great job!

  22. Rachel says:

    The last necklace… it’s so unexpected, but it WORKS. A little crazy, but a lot fabulous. Nice work!

  23. Gorgeous beads!! Very creative designs.

  24. Dyanne Everett-Cantrell says:

    OMG!!! THAT Necklace!! Those beads!! WOW!! The first necklace is adorable with the turquoise behind the glass focal. Then those earrings are great. I would totally rock those! Then the last necklace is gorgeous, and so unique. It is stunning. And purple is my favorite color!!

  25. vem030956 says:

    I agree with every one, that last necklace is totally over the top!!! Stunning work! And the earrings are really cute! Great job with everything!

  26. I am blown away. I would wear all of these, I LOVE those beads (even went to see if I could find the bead maker but she has nothing for sale on Etsy now). You really, really nailed this.

  27. Melissa says:

    Fabulous! I really love your pieces, I think the first is my favourite.

  28. Stunning work! Even though the “flower” beads were not your cuppa tea they spoke to you!

  29. Bobbie Rafferty says:

    Really eyepopping beautiful work! My favorite is the first necklace, especially since it came together as a way of solving the problem of the rounds separating from the triangle focal – lovely!!
