Summer 2012 Pantone Color Bead Swap

Lori Anderson of Bead Soup Cafe on Facebook hosted another Swap for us, this time a Pantone Color Bead Swap, the theme being Fashion colors for Spring and Summer.
The rules are to send beads in the 10 colors (all of the colors, or just a few, doesn't matter.)
There is NO blog hop for this swap.
There is NO requirement to make anything.
Strictly a bead swap
My partner Toltec Jewels and I agreed to swap all of the colors. I think it’s exciting to swap from the Pacific North Western Coast of Canada to the Eastern Southern Coast of Florida! Here is what I’m sending. I had trouble with a couple of colors, but tried my best. Hope she’ll be pleased with my selection of gemstone, glass and handcrafted polymer clay.

Pretty neat selection, don’t you think? The last swap for the season I’m participating will take place next month. It will have a Bead Blog hop involved and participants will have to create something with the beads. Fun, fun, fun. And speaking of fun, I’m currently working on another tutorial (or two…)

Wow, this looks great, Tina! I have sent my beads to my partner in Italy (so cool to be able to do that!) but both of our sets are still enroute. I had great fun shopping for her. Just the way you've done your colors on your blog is so cool!

I'm so blown away and thrilled with the beautiful bead mixes you created! They are all lovely, and I cherish your art, Tina.

Swapping from one paradise to another was big fun, and swapping beads mixes of every Pantone Summer color was even BIGGER fun! I'm completely honored and delighted to swap beads with you. Gracias my new friend!

I've posted pics of the bead mixes I made for you on my blog:) Hope you like!
