Random Bead Porn

Summer is over. School's back in session (except for our district being closed today due to the massive power outage even though our particular school never lost power AND the power is back on everywhere...which makes no sense to me) and I haven't done a bead porn post in a while so why not trot one out on a random Wednesday?

Except I just realized it's Friday. Obviously, the brain is still on summer vacation. I blame the power outage (because that's what everyone else is blaming everything on today).





Berry-vanilla faceted Czech glass.





Fiery orange Czech glass - how perfect for this time of year!





This color is called "black currant" - yumm! I want to spread some on toast!





And these I just thought were so unusual and had a lot of potential with all the colors. All of this lovely Czech glass is from Bead and Ribbon.





Ocean jasper "buffalo tooth" shape stones from Excellent Gem.





Carved white coral rounds are from Mint DeStash






As is this strand of mixed kyanite and picture jasper - what a great idea to mix these two stones! I would never have put them together on my own.





Long kyanite ovals also from Mint.





And these really nice, high quality labradorite coins came from Mint as well.





A selection of patinated scallop shell charms. Perfect for earrings.





Naahhh...I'm not a sucker for ocean-themed beads AT ALL. Everything in both of these photos is from Miss Fickle Media.





This great mixed media butterfly is from Floridity.





Sweet pink/moss green enameled bead caps.





Turquoise/brown enameled bead caps.





Teal/white snowflake enameled butterflies.





Magenta enameled butterflies.





Sky blue enameled butterflies.

All of these pretty enameled pieces are from Gardanne.





Ceramic koi fish pendant.





Deep teal and salmon pink ceramic flower pendant.





Deep green with splashes of electric blue and bright pink floral ceramic pendant.

All of these pieces are from The Classic Bead.





Gorgeously electric lampwork with sparkling silver accents from Julsbeads.





Julsbeads sets are like potato chips...you can never have just one.

In other news...I'm working on the next book review so stay tuned for that. I've also been busy stirring and simmering my Bead Soup and I'm really happy with the way it's coming out so I can't wait to get the finishing touches put on, the photos taken and the blog post written for the big reveal on September 17th. Be sure to bookmark this blog now if you want to check it on the 17th. Yes, there's a hop list, but I am WAAYYYY down towards the end and I'm assuming people will get blog fatigue before getting anywhere near that far (although, if you do actually make it to all 300+ blogs...you should definitely win some kind of award LOL!)

See ya back next week!
