Patience is a Virtue

Which I sooooo totally don't have. BUT! I wanted to thank everyone for patiently awaiting the posting of the game results and bead porn from Friday. So, thank you for that AND for the "get well" wishes, too. I greatly appreciated the thoughts!

So, now that you've all waited an extra three days, here's the winner: Paige from Paige Maxim Designs! Congratulations! You've won a mystery package of de-stash beads and a pair of earrings - just e-mail me your shipping address and I'll get them out to you!

And no, I didn't forget to bring the porn:

Sterling silver flowering leaf and branch component from Sweet Rock Candy Beads.

A cute pair of leafy links from the same source.

And a simple branch component as well.

And because I just can't resist a pansy "anything" - this pair of sterling silver pansy dangles.

Stone rondelles dyed in a variety of candy shades - just like a candy necklace!

Chinese turquoise barrels - both sets of stones are from Excellent Gem.

Carved feather charm from Floridity.

Matching bird bead from the same source.

Cute blue and red stoneware ceramic bird buttons from Sandhra Lee.

Bird's nest on a branch pendant from her as well. I really like the contrast between the blue glaze and the red clay showing through.

Beautiful sunburst flower pendant from The Classic Bead - great colors in this piece!

Cute little acorn bead from Summer's Studio, Etc.

Dragonfly and sunflower pendant in wonderful fall shades.

And a matching daisy pendant.

Gorgeous seashell raku lampwork beads from Kelley's Beads. The colors on these are just yummy!

Unusual "Canyon Road" swirled lampwork glass disks from Alisha White. Great touches of purple, orange, mustard and sage green in these beads.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and I'll see you tomorrow!

LOL - just today I told my friend "patience is an overrated virtue"

Love the selections (as usual).

Welcome back. :-) Hey, what does "raku" mean when applied to lampwork, anyway? Educate me? I thought raku was a specific glazing technique for ceramics.

Lots of yummies! and as always, we have similar tastes, so don't be surprised to see some of the same things pop up in my designs!!LOl
