Fall Pantone Bead Swap Reveal

On Monday LiliKrist, my partner in the swap, got the package I sent her. She liked how neatly I had packed it. I was looking forward to arrival of her package from Indonesia. When I arrived home from work on Monday night there was a tag on my mailbox to let me know that I had missed a package. I was not able to get to the post office until tonight on the way home from work.

Here is what I picked up.

Inside was this beautiful quilted pouch fill with neat little wrapped packages.

The contents all laid out in their labelled bags.

Here is a closer look at the beads for each colour.

French Roast - daggers and seed beads
Honey Gold - mushroom beads and seed beads
Pink Flambe - Swarovski bicones and agate beads
Tangerine Tango - Java seed beads in orange and dark orange
Ultramarine Green - Aventurine and petal beads
Bright Chartreuse - lentil and square beads
Olympian Blue - Agate and Handmade Ceramic bead
Titanium - crystal drop beads and recycled glass beads
Rhapsody - Stick beads and owl bead
Rose Smoke - round and heart beads
I am looking forward to playing with these beads and make some new pieces.

Thanks LiliKrist for these great beads from the other side of the world!


  1. Thank you so much for letting me see those! I can't wait to see what you make!

  2. The pouch made by friend of mine who work for Batik Keris =)
    Can't wait the project that you'll make using those beads.


  3. Fun to see your Pantone swap :) I was partners with Lori herself, and I was so nervous! I'll have to create a post about it too.

    Your work is so lovely, Jo-Ann. I'm glad I discovered your blog today in the HBBH.


  4. Love what you received! I am still hoping, I mean waiting for mine.
