I have to say that I am excited about this swap!! I was matched up with an amazing artist from India – Palak Udeshi (her blog is – http://kalaabhushan.blogspot.in/)! What an amazing lady! Not only is she a talented bead artist, but an amazing mother!! I have had so much fun getting to know her and her story!! As I was getting things together to send to her I was not only excited but also thinking of all the things that she might not be able to get in India that we have in the US.
So, I gathered, gathered a little more and then added just the last thing or two!! Here is what I sent her…
And here is what she sent me….aren’t they all amazing!!?!?! Just look at that Buddha…I fell in love with it the moment I saw it!!
So I set out to create….but not just anything, EVERYTHING!! I only ended up with a few spare items…just LOOK at what I made!!
Here is a ‘making of’ video of the beadwoven creations I made!
As you can see, I had so much fun!! Go check out what my partner created at http://kalaabhushan.blogspot.in/.
OH MY GOODNESS, I almost forgot…A few days before this reveal (thanks customs) I received MORE beautiful items to make creations with from my partner. I haven’t had a chance to make anything with these yet, but I will!! They are hand-pained coconut shells!! OH MY!!!!
