June "Swap Meet" Our faithful few: Lucia, Sharon (hostess w/the mostest), Bodil (and Dana taking shot)

We had a great time chatting and swapping!

Bodil's new necklace- acid-etched shell design, faceted gem, soldered frame/bail combo- very inventive!

Bodil balled up silver and patiently drilled through them to make beads. She then made 2 special gold beads the same way, and fabricated a gold clasp. We thought they were pearls at first- but once you feel it you know they're metal! Very cool...

Dana's final spiral stitch (thanks for teaching us this, Mimi!) with hand-made end caps and toggle with grouted seed-bead mosaic.

Hopefully we'll see each other again before the Fall. Have a great summer!
