7th Bead Soup Party: Meet My Partner Shalini Austin!

I've been assigned my partner for  the Bead Soup Blog Hop party.

And despite it being a worldwide blog hop, I've been assigned a partner who is only an hour or so drive away. How exciting!

Shalini and myself both thought the same thing when we received our email from Lori letting us know who our swap partners were. We're sure we know each other from somewhere! A swap, a group or something but still can't quite put our finger on it.

But onto some details about my very talented swap partner.

Shalini is based in Stamford, Lincolshire and does Lapidary as well as making beautiful wire worked jewellery such as this stunning pendant which is in her online shop.

Just look at that amazing stone. And the gold wire work just sets it off to a tee.

Shalini also makes ornamental gemstone trees. Here's one she made from Rose Quartz. I think you'll agree that they are amazing.

Check out Shalini's blog and her "Meet my swap partner" post.
