And now for something completely different

...except not.

It's still Friday

It's still make-you-drool-with-beads day.

So, here we go:





Erin from Every Heart Crafts is doing these great new pieces in simple brown and white and I just love them.






They have such a great beachy, driftwood kind of feel. Perfect for summer necklaces!







And speaking of beachy, check out these gorgeous disks from HMB Studios. The soft, translucent colors are just yummy.






So, of course, I had to get the matching set of nuggets. Don't these look almost like jelly beans or something. I swear I'd eat them if I wouldn't crack a tooth!





Dyed blue jade rondelles and isn't this color just completely delish?!!!



Same stone - fuchsia color. Mmmmmmm!





Green apples, anyone? This makes me want to make a pie...uh, that is, if my oven wasn't broken.





Cool silver heart-embellished bracelet link from Cathy Dailey. She needs to stop making such cool stuff before I run out of money!





Cool stuff like this awesome toggle with the vine bar. Can't wait to use this!



I finally got myself a Day of the Dead clay pendant from Gaea after drooling over it in my Etsy Favorites for months. Got some miscellaneous beads to go along with it so look for a necklace featuring this wonderful piece very soon. Like maybe in time for 2010's Day of the Dead, LOL!

Okay, Happy Friday to all my fellow bead addicts and don't forget to check back on Monday to find out the results of the Buggy Bracelet Challenge! For those who haven't turned in their submissions yet, you have until Sunday!!

"no!! i want to keep it!!" they're like my Precioussss. the fuscia dyed jade has caught my eye lately too. but i have not succumbed. i got fuscia chalk turqouise instead.

Bead dieting...it's almost as bad as real dieting! I'm so glad to find kindred souls out there who think that a well turned piece of glass can make any day better. :)

I'm all posted up on the bug challenge, too...it was fun!! Check it out at: http://jenjuddrocks.blogspot.com/2009/11/bbb-thats-buggy-beady-bracelets.html
