Beads of Clay Bead Swap

Recently a number of Beads-of-Clay members participated in a bead swap. This year I thought I would make a video of what I received. Hence the short video below. I had some technical problems so I apologize in advance for the lack of sound. Hopefully all the artists are clearly identified. Just in case, I am listing them all for your reference.
It takes a few minutes for the picture to come up so please be patient. Thanks.

  1. Good video Mary! All the beads were so pretty. Can't wait for the next one.

  2. I must say again it was simply my pleasure to do the swap and would do it again if needed! I so enjoyed seeing them all and had a blast with the whole process. thank you!

  3. Thank you so much for writing in. I am glad you like it. Marti and Gerry I have fixed your links. T

  4. This is terrific! I'm so glad to see these beads, because I was in the other group. Such great art!

  5. Thanks Natalie. Interestingly enough your video from several years ago of a BOC bead swap comes up at YouTube when I look at the one I did. I hope people look at both of them and see where we have been.
