Celebrate Spring / Празник на пролетта

My package for the Bead Peeps Swap N Hop got lost or, hopefully, terribly delayed :) Last year, one of the participants didn't get her package but she didn't give up and posted jewelry made with beads from her stash! I'm sorry I forget her name as she inspired me to do the same! I was planning to make a series of flower themed jewelry to celebrate spring anyway.
Пратката ми за международната размяна на мъниста Bead Peeps Swap N Hop или се е загубила, или просто се е забавила, надявам се :) Това се случи и на една от участничките миналата година, но въпреки това тя направи и публикува бижута с мъниста от своите запаси. Съжалявам, че не помня името й, защото ме вдъхнови и аз да постъпя така! И без това планирах серия от бижута на тема "цветя" за подобаващо посрещане на пролетта.

In my first necklace, I used a lampwork daffodil by PetrovnaLampwork, silver plated and aluminum wire and a crystal bead.
Първото колие е с авторско мънисто на PetrovnaLampwork, посребрена и алуминива тел и кристалче.



No art bead in the second necklace - the focal is washi decoupage on wood, wire wrapping is simple to show off the pattern and the cord is decorated with beaded flowers - a true mixed media piece! Look out for more of these - Palm Sunday is coming!
Второто колие не е с авторско мънисто - централната висулка е декупаж с ръчно правена японска хартия върху дървена плочка, увиването с тел е скромно, за да изпъкне мотивът, а кордата е украсена с направени от мен цветчета от мъниста - истинска смесица от различни техники и материали! Очаквайте още колиета от тази серия - иде Цветница!



This year, my partner was Shaiha Williams and this is her blog. I'm always curious about my partner because I've often met them online before - I've read her blog and come across her name in our Facebook group :) And the person who keeps us connected is Linda Anderson and you can find links to all the participants on her blog :)
Моят партньор тази година - Shaiha Williams и блога й. А в блога на Линда Андерсън - организатор на събитието, има връзки към всички участници :)

    1. Thank you, Michelle! The only advantage and challenge of getting the package would be creating with beads I haven't picked myself :)

  3. I love both of these so much! The first one definitely scream spring to me. There's so much light and loveliness to it. And, the second one calls to me because of it's mixed media-ness. You know I can't resist that! :) Great job going on with the show despite not receiving your package. That's inspiring!!

  7. I wish you had told me that your parcel was lost.I would have sent you one. I have always wanted to pair up with you. Anyway, I appreciate your enthusiasm to participate and you have made 2 very lovely pieces. The firs necklace is simple and stunning.

    1. Very kind of you, Divya! We can make a personal swap sometimes, what do you think? The truth is, I was hopeful until the last moment but also had plan B in mind :)

    1. Thank you, Lyilha! The idea for the daffodil went through several revisions before I chose to keep things down :)

  9. Oh my goodness! Your wirework is divine. You’ve made such beautiful things and I’m glad you still joined in. Being an international swapper can be a bit of a challenge - it was me last year that didn’t get mine in time. This year mine arrived 4 days before the deadline! I still enjoy it every time though.

    1. Thank you, Penny Jane! It is so unfair that in this technical age there's no way to track a regular parcel, isn't it? And the thought that there are some beautiful art beads in this package is quite frustrating :) Anyway, it's a double challenge for us, right :)

  10. How disappointing that your swap package did not arrive. I was nervously watching the package tracking info for what I sent my partner and crossing my fingers it would not get lost. I'm glad you decided to participate with your own beads. I am always impressed with your wire work. It looks so effortless, but I know it takes skill and practice. (I know because I've tried it and my pieces never looked so good.) Beautiful designs.
