Saturdays With Sharleen - Swap Necklaces

Last month Beads of Clay did a new kind of swap. Participants had their names placed in a hat and two at a time were drawn. These two artists exchanged beads and/or pendants. The recipient agreed to make a necklace or other item with their partner's work. Here are the results of that swap. Each artist now has a photo of a finished piece that they can use for advertising/promotion, like Fire Mountain Gem's "suggested use" pics.
Here they are....drum roll please!
