Artbead Earring Swap

Diana Ptaszynski contacted me about an Art Bead Earring swap she was doing, and I thought why the heck not! I had seen a few other things like this from other artists and had wanted to participate in the past but had not known about it! Thanks Diana for inviting me :)

Diana and I met on Facebook through the wonderful process of random friending! lol I say this because I honestly can not remember where exactly I found her, but I sure am glad I did! We have seen each others work and casually commented here and there, but the breakthrough to our friendship came in mid August when Diana and I realized we shared the same Birthday! How fun! Diana is younger than me {lucky girl} by about 5 years I think but no matter, we hit it off. How lucky am I that I got her as a partner!

She sent me these gorgeous earrings! I can't wait to wear them! I am so excited! I love everything about them, the Bright silver, the sparkly bits, but most of all I LOVE the little tiny rosettes Diana made herself! So sweet! I think I will feel very feminine wearing these :)
 Thought I would use the last of my summer pansies for the picture... why not!!
 These are the earrings I sent to Diana! Sorry the pic in not the best, I used my iPhone to take it.
I can't wait to hear what Diana has to say about her new earrings!

I love the earrings you received and the earrings you sent! The pink goes very well with the silver and the green goes very well with the brass. It's awesome making friends online who share the same hobbies and interests!
