A Swap--"A Not Too Shabby {Summer} Swap"

Okay, well, I just couldn't wait until the final word from Roxi...too eager to get the word out and a picture of what my swap item is. Below is the list of details about the swap--"A Not Too Shabby {Summer} Swap" hosted by Roxi and Adrienne at www.roxisfriends.blogspot.com.

To the left is the swap item I'll be giving away. I deviated a bit from all crystal or glass beads to including a few sterling silver fish beads with glass beads for the bubbles and sea grass. The pendant setting itself is not sterling. It measures approximately 1" by 3/4". This design is definitely "summery"--how can fish NOT be summery??

Go on ahead to Roxi's blog for all the fun details, but here are their rules:
1. Create a 'Summer Themed' item for the swap valued at $10.00. (All styles are welcome---vintage-inspired, shabby chic, primative, etc. All items also welcome---soap, jewelry, accessories, paper products, etc.)
2. Gift wrap the item as pretty as you like! (we all love to open pretty presents),
3. We will accept entries until May 15th, 2008 (***If we have not received your mailing address ,via email, by May 15th you will not be able to participate!),
4. Names will be assigned to participants by May 20th, 2008 (shh, don't tell who you got!),
5. Packages should be mailed by you no later than May 26th, 2008 (in order for packages to arrive to each participant by June 1st.)
6. If you cannot mail your item because of special circumstances, PLEASE let me know!
7. You do not need a blog to participate.
Just let me know beforehand (when you post) and you can email me pics of your item and your info.
8. Leave a post and then email me your mailing address (listed at right), thanks!

Have fun!
