A really great way to spark some creativity and inspiration is to participate or host your own Bracelet Swap. Heather Powers and I got together and formed a great group of talented jewelry designers, and bead artists, to participate in a swap this past Spring.
Each of us started a bracelet, using some of our favorite beads and components. We passed them all on, to the first person of the Swap. That person added a little bit to each one and passed them all on to the next person. And so on and so forth, until we each ended up with the finished bracelet we started with. The coolest part is, we all ended up with a collaborative effort between designers! A little piece of each of us in a keepsake bracelet that we will have forever, or until we pass it down into our families. Oh the stories we’ll be able to tell about the Sisterhood of the Travelling bracelets!
I put together small collages of the before and after shots of each of our bracelets so you could all see how far each one has come!
