I am participating in Bead Peeps 2nd Annual Swap'n Hop and paired with Marcy Lamberson. She a glass artist who loves making people smile through her whimsical beads and sculptures. Marcy is also a glass teacher too who offers private lessons in her studio in Atlanta and group lessons at studios around the United States.

Marcy's art work is gorgeous. Some of her work includes animal fetish beads and sculptures. I was lucky enough to get some of her lampwork beads. I suggest that you visit Marcy's Etsy shop to look at more of her work. She also sells on facebook from time to time. You can get to know her better on her blog.

I just love this large royal blue glass bead by Marcy. It is so beautiful by itself that I that I wanted to showcase it in a simple design. I used gunmetal chain and links along with the light blue glass links by Marcy. This is a necklace can be worn with anything from jeans to a little black dress.

I wanted to make a few spring bracelets for my Etsy shop and some of Marcy's beads were perfect with 2 bracelet bars that I had, This is a a floral bracelet that features a handmade yellow daffodil with green leaves on a pale blue background. The daffodil bracelet is held together with a handmade copper clasp by me. The floral art bead in the center is by Humblebeads. From the beads that Marcy sent I used her 3 handmade cream colored beads and the blue sea glass bead-- all perfect colors for this. It is available for purchase HERE.
I feel like I made some of my best jewelry pieces ever because I had such inspiring and beautiful beads by Marcy. I am thankful for her generosity.
Grab a beverage and enjoy seeing what others did with their gifted beads. A special thanks to our hostess:
