A new year, a new jewellery design challenge!

Bring it on! The Bead Peeps Swap N Hop is in full swing!

Bead Peeps 2015 Blog Hop Badge

Thank you so much to Linda Anderson for taking on the enormous task of organizing and hosting a blog hop of such epic proportions. This is the inaugural blog hop of Bead Peeps Swap N Hop … reminiscent of Lori Anderson’s Bead Soup Blog Party from previous years.

Partners were announced a couple of weeks ago and allow me to introduce to you … my swap-ee … Debra Jeffries of Debra’s Divine Designs!

A fellow Canadian (she is in Ontario, I am in Alberta) and fellow Artisan Group Member …  Debra is mostly known for her handmade recycled real butterfly and insect wing jewellery. (Did you know that most butterflies have a very short life span of approximately only 2-3 weeks?! I had no idea – until I read her About Me page on her website!)

Here is a gorgeous example of some of Debra’s work … a real blue Morpho butterfly necklace

 Real Blue Morpho Butterfly Necklace

Her mission is “To create jewelry using eco-friendly, reclaimed, recycled items leaving a healthy sustainable planet. [Her] butterfly jewelry are created using only farmed, naturally expired butterflies and [her] goal is to teach the world about the importance of butterfly farming and keeping our world healthy for future generations”.

Interested to see more of Debra’s work? Be sure to have a peek at her Etsy shop
Well, it’s now time to get busy cooking up a soup mix for Debbie … stay tuned!
