I had to do a swap incorporating beads. It could be anything at all as long as it used beads.Whilst I was on a short break in Devon I had picked up several of these hanging 'Live'  at a car boot sale. Just right for altering!
I first  of all  removed the wire and  painted it with cinnamon Viva metal paint, and when it was dry painted again with Viva olive green metal.When it was dry I stamped it with Versamark using a scroll stamp, and  heat embossed using fine detail gold. I did this on both sides. I  threaded some gold wire though the holes to make a hanger, and using small beads threaded onto Nymo wove them through the wire. Hope my swap partner likes it.
