I Love Trades


I love trades and will usually trade when asked. I ask frequently when I see something I want, but find people aren't as willing. Oh well!
I can't believe this incredibly beautiful bracelet I got in a trade today. I traded with my friend Lori of Lorelie1141 for one of my little Jack-o-lanterns! I just love the beautiful beads - I think they are jasper (sorry Lori if I'm wrong), and the little bouquet of buttons - how sweet! It is finished with a lovely copper toggle. It's a perfect fit and I am so drawn to the color palette. I'm so delighted with my trade. It's a sentimental bracelet too cause I know Lori purchased the beads here in my area when she attended the big bead show in August and we got together. Thanks Lori!

I spent the day making some new things for my shop - I'll preview them tomorrow or Friday. I feel accomplished!
