These Thimble Beads from Florida’s Patrice Pfeiffer are her swap items for the upcoming Fandango gathering in Orlando.

But don’t they look best in a grouping like this? The deep textures, rich colors and wonky cone shapes work so well together that it’s a shame to break up the set. Isn’t that the way? We grumble about making swap items and end up loving them only to send them off to new homes. Remember to make yourself a few extras next time.
