Digging into the dragon hord

Honey Bee Dreams
Okay, so, I think I'm finally done hoarding goodies from Amanda Davie. The dream connector here is the first piece I've used. I've just been buying them a few at a time and now I have a nice little dragon hord of a stash going on. Time to start using them.  I paired this sweet stamped bronze metal clay connector with some wire wrapped faceted opal nuggets, a lampwork nugget from Kelleys Beads, some bar chain, and a bee charm from Candice Wakumoto,(i got it from Andrew)  and amber glass looking glass drop from Cindy Gimbrone. I love how it came out, and the amber and teal color combination has to be one of my all time favorites.

Lavender Hopping


I also used a few of those cute lavender beads I blogged about last week. I thought they'd be cute paired with these brass dragonflies which were actually linked together in a chain that I found at Michael's. Both of these new pieces are now in my etsy shop.

I am spending the day at home today. After 18 inches of snow fell in the last 24 hours, I don't plan on leaving my little oasis of home.  STAY WARM!

  1. That bar chain you used is really cool. And I can't believe you didn't hoard those little gorgeous lavender beads longer. Both designs look fabulous!

  2. I was wondering what you'd do with those beads. Both things are gorgeous.

  3. Gorgeous! I too, was curious about how you would use those lavender beads and the pair of earrings are perfect!

    I am really excited about Amanda Davie, not very many people are selling the copper and bronze clay elements and to have someone of her talent offer them is wonderful!

    I found those same dragonfly connectors at Michaels and I love how they look with the lavender beads here.

    Very lovely.

  8. Love the colour combination of aqua and amber with bronze (but then again I have a thing for bronze) and the earrings are scrumptious!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
