Oh my my!

I had fun last night! YAY! I sat with all my bead trays surrounding me and went to town on a few pieces. First let me say that I'm not happy with my pictures today. I had only one sunny spot to take these photo's and they are all a little too bright for me! But you do what you must! Here's the rundown, and I'm happy to say that two of these are already sold! This first bracelet was a custom order. I've named it
"Black Bean & Avocado...with a Margarita on the side!"
Just fits doesn't it? :) Love it!
This one features glass beads made by my awesome friend, the lovely Carey of Sassy Stoppers! There's a ton of silver in here, green pearls, Swarovski Crystals in Light Olivine, Jet Black and Crystal AB. It's finished with a Huge Hill Tribe Silver Toggle.

"Blue Lagoon"
Glass cones made by Carey! Bali Bead Caps, Aqua and Indian Sapphire Swarovski Crystals and Bali daisy Spacers.
This pair of earrings is *SOLD* (To my neighbor, who came over while I was photographing them and claimed them immediately to wear to a benefit tonight!) Don't worry, I have more cones! Will make another pair later on.

"Pink Blush"
This glass focal was made by a local glass artist. It's phenomenal! The colors, design and shape are all just so beautiful together. There's Pale pink, light and dark brown and swirls of silver. I used some really cool silver bangle tubes that came directly from Thailand and a Bali silver toggle clasp. This will be going up on Etsy tonight!

"Sand Dunes by the Bay"
These are one of my favorite sets of glass beads made by the one and only Melissa Rediger. They are a creamy sandy colored base with swirls of various metallic blues and browns throughout. I accented these with scroll rectangles and briolettes, Pamada beads, Swarovski Crystals in Smoked Topaz, Indian Sapphire, Sand Opal, Crystal Golden Shadow and Indigo Blue and it's finished with a Bali Toggle Clasp. Also going up on Etsy later tonight.

More to come! I'm having fun and I pulled out a few more sets of cool beads to work with later on! Please check back and enjoy the sunshine today! :)
