Vacay Bead Porn - Round 2

Hopefully, I am at this moment sliding down a snowy hillside in a saucer with my son and nephew and not breaking my neck in the process. While I'm out getting cold, tired, wet and probably bruised up, help yourself to some "drool on the computer screen" beady time:




I can't get enough of these bright dotty beads from BeadIntrigue. I just had to have every color. But I've got a cool design in the works for them so stay tuned!




I feel so sunny!




This beautiful sky-blue pair is from the so-talented Sue of Sue Beads on Etsy. Not only are these beads done in some of my favorite colors, but I thought the detail work on them was particularly outstanding. Good job, Sue!




Another great set from Sue - and if I remember correctly, these are made from glass that came from recycled wine bottles (or else I hallucinated that part which is entirely possible since, as the kid so kindly informed me last night "you are old and your brain doesn't work right any more, but I don't mean that in a harsh way." Yep. Uh huh. Thanks. Not harsh AT ALL.)





I seem to be kind of obsessed with "links" lately. I want everything to have at least two holes so I can easily link it to something else. I dunno why. These are from Cathy Dailey.




Sterling silver textured star charms from Cathy Dailey.





Golden yellow enamel bead grouping from Barbara Lewis. This set comes with several different sizes and shapes of beads, flower bead caps and even head pins with enamel ball tips. So cool!



Aqua chalcedony brios from Fabulous Rocks.




Green chalcedony brios.








Tiny iolite brios.








Pink chalcedony brios.






Lotus flower porcelain charms from Summer's Studio. I can't get enough of this gorgeous blue/green glaze combo she's got going. Yummmm!





So darling blue bird bead from Summer's Studio. PLUS - she sent me a free matching "baby bird" in the same package - AWESOME!







Periwinkle "script" porcelain heart from Round Rabbit. How can you not just LOVE that color?





This heart is also from Round Rabbit - another amazing color combo on it. I'm seeing some turquoise, smoky quartz, white pearls and gold to go with this. MMMMMM!



As you can see, I spent Valentine's Day treating myself to heart beads on Round Rabbit's Etsy site. The delicate branch detail and deep rich purple color on this heart made it irresistible to me!

Have a great weekend, everyone, and I will be back on Monday (assuming I survived the snow)!

Thanks for the shout out, Kelly! And you were right, they are made from a wine bottle! Tell that kid you aren't that old yet!
