At least once a year Southern Flames has a Bead Swap - a meeting that makes everyone happy because we all go home with a new bead.  Before the meeting members were given the following instructions:

Make a bead everyone will want to steal,

wrap it up with no indication of the artist, and bring it for the swap! 

These are the beads exchanged at our 2012 Bead Swap.  You'll find listed the person who made the bead, a brief description or comment provided by the artist, and the lucky winner.
