Hard-earned Bead Porn

I don't know about you, but I feel like I EARNED this bead porn break this week LOL!
Of course, everyone is welcome to look, but for those of you who are still suffering time disorientation and/or otherwise had a hard week, well, you EARNED this porn, too, so enjoy!












I love when I'm shopping on Etsy and decide I need a certain thing - either a color, or type of bead or shape or something - and then I buy a bunch of it, but by the time it arrives, I no longer have any idea what it was I was gonna use it for. That's what happened with these yellow-y-golden pearls and jade rounds. Of course, I'll still use 'em. I just wish I remembered what I was thinking when I bought 'em LOL!













I can't get enough of these drilled beach stones. I bought some great toggle bars to work with the ones on the right for clasps. Those're gonna be fun to play with.














More Jade Scott pendants. As soon as I saw her listing these sailboats, I had to have one. I got beat out on the first two she listed, but finally got this one.

























More yumminess from Patina Queen. I'm hoping, hoping, hoping that if nothing goes wrong with my planned schedule, I might get to finally break out the resin and play with those bezels and all the goodies I've been collecting to put into them.

Maybe.

Possibly.

God willing and the creek don't rise ;-)




















Wonderful ceramic lovliness from Every Heart Crafts. I already know what I'm gonna do with that cool feather connector link. It's just begging me to reach back to my Southwestern roots and pull in some turquoise and deep red coral and...ooohhhh...it's gonna be gooooooood!








This pretty pair is from Joycelo on Etsy. I love the CZ sparkle she puts on each bead.








I loved the sky blues, lavenders and mossy greens in these lampwork beads. These might need to be a weekend project, too.

No...resin first. Must do resin.

Ignore shiny pretty lampwork (for now).







Some great aqua hollow lampwork from Alisha White.




I loved the unusual color combo in this set from Outwest on Etsy. I'm seeing it with some dark, gunmetal chain maybe and some inky blue pearls??? Hmmm....
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Wonderful porn! I totally relate to forgetting the great idea I had when I bought certain beads. Your yellow ones are my favorite color. I'm sure you will make something fabulous with all of them.
