You didn't see anything....
These are not the droids you're looking for...
But they ARE the beads you're looking for:
Deep red and gold ceramic charms from Dot Winchell at Winchell Clay Works.
And these pretty blue and green ceramic beads.
This lovely and wintry-looking clay blossom is from Tracee Dock at Classic Bead.
Ceramic and crackled glass charms in a deep teal color from Artisan Clay. This is definitely a case where the picture doesn't do justice to the finished product. They are a much deeper, more mysterious-looking teal in real life and they just GLISTEN in the light. I definitely hope she makes more of these little guys!
Matte and transparent lavender glass lampwork rings - beautifully etched to a nice soft finish by Outwest.
I've been looking and looking at these babies on Gardanne's site for a while. Tried to resist, but I just couldn't pass up that drenched color on the black - it's gorgeous!
Blue Seraphim has started adding these gorgeous glass pendants to her already-amazing lampwork sets. The pendant is made by applying artwork to the back of a glass dome and sealing it with resin. I hesitated to get one since I already do my own resin work, but I just loved the earthy greens and browns touched off by silver in this set so had to get one to investigate.
Despite my best efforts, I'm apparently still unable to resist blue and green lampwork. This set is from Flamecrazy.
And last but not least, this incredible set of beads from Libelula. Etched to look like sea glass and touched with droplets of silver, they are just gorgeous in real life. I've already been playing around with them trying to come up with a design that fits and so far, I'm kind of thinking all they need is a bunch of silver between the beads to bring out the silver drops on the lampwork and then to be left alone to take center stage.
