I Feel the Need...

...the need for bead (porn).

I had a great pair of earrings published in "Bead Trends" last year that featured marquis-cut quartz stones so when I saw that Gemme Tresor was selling more of this cut, I decided to grab some up.

Green aventurine.


Green quartz.

Sterling silver fleur de lis pendant.

Sterling silver fleur de lis charms from Sweet Rock Candy beads on Etsy.

Sterling silver leaf toggle from Sweet Rock Candy.

Rosebud and leaf charms from Sweet Rock Candy.

Dreaming of summer with these juicy orange and white dotted beads from Bead Intrigue.

Cool, clear aqua glass pair from Sue Beads.

And...the matching bead set...because that's just how I roll.

Lastly, a beautiful turquoise pair from Libelula.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Marquise cuts are my fave! (That is what my wedding ring has when it wasn't really in vogue.)
Did you SEE the crescent moon last night? I was thinking of you ;-)
And singing the moon song...wishing for three stars (as my astute son said it wasn't really a Tri Delta moon without them!). Enjoy the day!

oooh la la! These are all delicious!
I like the marquis cut stones, they have a really nice elegant feel to them.
Nice collection of items from StarSpiritStudio- i'd love to see some of their work in your finished pieces, so stop hoardin' them!
