Announcing … my partner in the upcoming Bead Peeps Swap N Hop.
Drumroll please …
It’s Linda Andersoooon of Cherry On Top Design :-) Yep, I got the hostess of the event. How awesome is that now?
After much anticipation and nail biting haha, partners were finally announced a couple of days ago. Yaaay! I’m so excited for the opportunity to get to know Linda better and also send her some wonderful beads so she can work her magic on them.
I was already somewhat familiar with her work but yesterday I had a good look at her Etsy shop and blog and man, this girl has some serious talent! She’s been published in beading magazines!!!
I just love her crocheted pieces. A couple of years ago I made a crocheted necklace after watching a video on YouTube. I’m very fond of that necklace but it doesn’t look anywhere near as good as the ones Linda makes :-)
Here’s one of my favorite pieces from my partner in crime. This is one of her published pieces. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Here’s another one of my favorites. I love cuff bracelets and I LOVE this beauty. Stunning, stunning piece.
What else did I find out about Linda? She LOVES Swarovski crystals and pearls. She also loves to use silver in her designs.
And now a major decision awaits me. The first thing that I noticed when looking at Linda’s jewelry was how different it was to what I usually make.
Soooooo, should I be an angel and send Linda some lovely beads that would go more with the style of jewelry that she usually makes or should I *assumes a Dr. Evil pose* send her something that’s totally out of her comfort zone? Mwuahahahaha!!!
And now, *resumes her Dr. Evil pose* I’m off to make that decision. Mwuahahahaha!!!!!
