New Beads-of-Clay Swap

The Beads-of-Clay Yahoo Group is having a new and different bead swap.  The ideas for this one came from Sharleen Newland of Shaterra Clay.  Instead of sending out 20 pieces we have each agreed to send out a pendant or set of focal beads to a swap partner.  Sharleen did the organizing of the partners.  I was so lucky to draw Lisa Boucher's name and now look at the lovely beads and pendant I have.   There is more to this.  We are each making a piece of jewelry with the ceramic pieces from our swap partner.  In about two weeks, we will be blogging about what we made.  So you will be treated to photos of some wonderful new jewelry made with beads of clay. 
You can see more of Lisa Boucher's work here.
