I had the pleasure of being paired up with Dolores Raml of Crafty D's Creations.
She is a multi talented creator in many craft mediums. I really had fun going through
all the wonderful things that she included in my swap design kit. This is what I received:

I used everything included in my design kit except for the dove charm, 4 lamp work beads
and a few spacer beads. I added from my stash the waxed linen stringing material, antique
silver chain and earring wires. This is my finished design:

I plan on gifting this jewelry set to my Mom for Mother's Day because she loved the spoon
pendant so much. Please visit Dolores's blog at www.craftydscreations.wordpress.com
