Beaded Bottle Necklace set Amulet Bag

Pat Murphy & Bev Moon
Bev tells me: Title: Intertwined Hearts - I made the hearts in different colors and sizes to represent the diversity of this group and they are all linked together to represent the caring and sharing this group has for one another. I have a sort of crudely colored graph of this that I worked from and would be happy, if anyone wants a copy. I can scan it and sent it as an attachment but I really need to find out how to reduce the size.
(Bev, it is a lovely piece and a lovely inspiration.)

"Jacque's Pouch"

Katie Bug's Amulet Bag for Jacque
Beautiful work and cute bag, Kbug! Jacque says: "This is the pouch Katie Bug made for the Valentine swap. I'm thrilled to have a pouch that was made by somebody else. She did a very good job. I wear gold jewelry because of a nickel allergy so she made a great choose with the 22kt Delica's. She calls it "The Early Mary Tyler Moore Heart Hug Bag" I'm very proud to own a Katie Bug pouch.

Cindi Mac and Keri Luiz were swap partners. Cindi's pouch is her own design and she has sewn small charms on the inside. Really cute idea, Cindi! Keri's pouch design is done in horizontal netting, two different types of fringe, and a little surface embellishment

Cindy Allison and Lynne/Beadesigner were swap pardners.
Cindy's spiral set for Lynne. Now how did she do those bands of color? Well...Cindy sez: " The stitch used is RAW and it comes from the right angle weave tube Em has on her Miningco site. In the center I did a braid from Jacque Carey's book and for the bracelet, I braided around wire so that it would bend to whatever width Lynne wanted to wear it."
