Each person pays a set amount and gets the same pack of various beads. We are supposed to use as much of the pack as possible and we are not allowed to add anything except findings.
My Secret Santa turned out to be Aster Sadler, who does some fantastic things - check out her website. http://www.seedybeady.com/
I got a gorgeous ring, really beautiful and blingy..
Along with some cutie earrings..
and a fantastic cuff (although I wore it as a choker) of amazing beaded embroidery - how clever !
