Fabric Necklace and Bracelet I Made for a Friend

It's got a whopping big rectangle beaded fabric bead on it! These are my Tubettes and I made it in her school colors.

Bead Swap Beads

Theses are the beads I received in the swap to create the items below.

What I Did With Mary's Fabric Beads

Here are the beads from Mary in England. I made them into a Florida Scarf Necklace....or Tubettes as I like to call them!

Bead Swap Creations

I am working on projects using the fabric beads I received from the latest Milliande swap I joined. The photo with the black and blue colorway is using the beads I received from Nina in Canada. I used her beads in both the necklace and bracelet. I still need to add the toggle as I am out of crimping beads. The lighter blue necklace is using the vintage fabric beads I received from Patty in Vegas. I didn't use one of hers in the bracelet as the fabric in her beads were vintage and more fragile. I'm pretty tough on bracelets! They both do amazing wire/beading work! I have some more beads that I received from Mary in England, but am still working on those pieces and will post when I finish.
