Hopefully I’ll be able to make it up to my beading partners for the Bead Hoarder’s Edition of Lori Anderson’s Blog Hop by posting loads about both of my partners and how wonderful their work is…

Recapping, I was a little slow getting everything out to them, but they were both really sweet and understanding about it.


Anyhow, my second partner for the swap is

Liz Engriser –  http://beadcontagion.blogspot.com/

Liz does incredibly beautiful and textured bead embroidery. Make sure you go ahead and read her blog and look at all of her process and finished piece photos.

Again, a beautifully packaged little gift…  Plus a handmade clasp she found at a show and some wonderful beachy things…


And when I opened it up?  A handpainted Alphonse Mucha focal bead.  What Liz had NO IDEA about was that he is one of my all time favorite painters.  I already know what I’m going to do with the piece, but I’ll probably go ahead and hoard the finished product then.


There was also some chocolate, but it last like 3 seconds.  Apparently I have no problems hoarding chocolate.  Thanks Liz!
