Born To Be Worn by S & T Creations

I’m a Virgin Partier!

Posted on: August 15, 2011

Now, anyone who knows me may laugh, but I’m joining in my first bead swap party (hence a virgin partier–lol). Lori Anderson, author of Pretty Things blog, organizes these world wide web blog parties two or three times a year.  You simply sign up on her blog and wait to hear from her.  She personally matches each player with a partner (not a small feat, there are 344 in this swap!!).  Each swap has a different theme, this one is all about the clasp. No lobster claw accepted.  With your clasp, pair up other beads, including a focal bead, and send the stash to your partner.  I sent mine out today, but I can’t show off the goodies until later—don’t want to ruin the surprise for my blog partner!  My partner is Rochelle Brisson .

The only real rule to the design is to use the clasp.  The beads are optional.  It is expected that you will need to add some of your own inventory to complete your design.

I think the idea of receiving a collection of beads someone else chose is intriguing. It will be a great way to move me out of my comfort zone.  That is one of the goal’s for the Bead Swap Parties.  Try something new and different.  So, stay tuned.  Once my beads arrive, I’ll be posting a quick photo and then, off to designing!!
