I gave in and went back to The Patina Queen. I just can't seem to stay away from her stuff.
This color is so amazing. I can't wait to do something with this.
These kissing birds were so cute and I like that there are so many openings on this piece - offers a lot of different options for how to string it.
Antiqued brass sand dollar charms - because I can't ever resist anything with an ocean or beach theme.
I'm in love with these beachy beads from SueBeads. And I don't even care that summer is over with - a cute pair of earrings made from these and you can have summer with you all year long!
I have to 'fess up and admit that I'm not normally a big fan of polymer clay beads. Quite often they don't look quite, I guess, elegant enough for me. That's not really the word, but I can't really describe it - they sometimes look too plastic-y and fake or something. I don't know. But anyway, when I saw these beads and the beautiful flower detail and lovely bright colors, I just had to have them. Plus, they made me want to lick them to see if they taste like strawberry (the pink) or pineapple (the yellow). And that's always the acid test for beads - if they look so good you wish you could eat them...then they're probably good beads.
Got this set from the same artist. Her name is Zuleikha (I THINK I spelled that right) on Etsy.
And, as long as I was perusing poly clay beads, I figured I might as well go all the way. Besides, this set had a pair of PANSIES in it. I am all about the pansy beads, yo! These beads came from The Color of Dreams on Etsy.
Yes, they ARE just as yummy as they look and the colors are just fantastic.
Have a great weekend, everyone! Maybe I MIGHT get a chance to finish some jewelry this weekend, but if nothing else, I am FINALLY GETTING MY HAIR CUT! That's gotta lift my spirits and put me in a more creative frame of mind for sure, right?
