Cloudy skies...not pretty!

Just quoted the weather man, he said that today had "Cloudy skies...not pretty". I'll say. But I managed to get outside around 5pm when the drizzles stopped to snap some shots of last nights beading session.
Made with some awesome glass beads from Jenelle (and Daniel) of SFD, Beads and Botanicals.
Accented by Fire Opal Swarovski Crystals and twisted Heishi spacers. I love the toggle on this one. The pattern looked haunting and I even made a little witches hat of sorts out of a Bali cone and some crystals dangling out of it.
"Blue Lagoon"
I loved these beads the second I saw them. They are made by Lea of LA Jewelry Design. The colors are so pretty and I love the depth in them. I accented them with Caribbean Blue Opal and Olivine Swarovski Crystals and Bali Spacers.
"Nefertiti's Muse"
Oh man, this one is killer. To start off, there is an AWESOME focal bead made by my dear friend Carey. Then, there are black organic seeds made by Jenelle of SFD. Along with those are some golden amber discs made by Polychrome Beads. Accented by Jet and Light Colorado Topaz Swarovski Crystals, Spiral beads and twisted spacers. The silver toggle tops it off and below are the matching earrings.
Fit for a queen!
Still thinking of a name for these, but I just love them! Bali bead caps and spacers, Olivine and Jet Crystals, and really fun glass beads!
UPDATE: These have been named "Wicked" at the suggestion of Erin at Tesori Trovati! Thanks Erin!! Love it!
"Cotton Candy"
I had to have these beads that Melissa made. I saw them and loved the shape and color. Accented by silver spacers and Violet crystals, they look good enough to eat.
Going to see what I can get done tonight, so stay tuned for more to come!


  1. As usual, I love all of your designs. I want to know why YOUR muse is cooperating and mine seems to have left the planet LOL! The focal bead on that first bracelet is absolutely to die for!

  2. What a treat to happen upon your blog & see what the lovely bracelet you made with my beads. What a lovely piece! You made my day!

  3. Yay Lea!! It all starts with the beautiful glass beads, my friend. And those are truly beauties!! :)

  4. Hi Kristen! Thanks for stopping by Treasures Found! I look forward to sharing more with you. You make some lovely jewelry. And those earrings that you don't have a name for? How about "Wicked"...they remind me of the color of Elphaba in the musical! Enjoy the day! Erin
