2017 Bead Peeps Swap’n’Hop - My Partner

Last month I signed up for the 2017 Bead Peeps Swap’n’Hop on Facebook. This involves being assigned a partner to exchange beads and findings with, and my partner for this challenge is the beautiful and talented jewellery maker, Rozantia Petkova.

Rozantia lives in the romantic city of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Not only is she skilled in just about every jewellery technique you can think of, she is also teaching herself to draw. And, it transpires, she is very experienced at jewellery swap challenges (unlike me!).

I picked 3 photos to show just a few of the vast range of techniques Rozantia has mastered - these very different pieces demonstrate her versatility in bead-weaving, resin and wirework, as well as her design skills!

You can see more of Rozantia’s work at http://bairozan.blogspot.bg/ and follow her on instagram and pinterest. I can't wait to receive my parcel and see what she has sent me - watch this space!
