A few recent Purchases...

We are headed out the door this morning for the Holiday weekend. I am sitting here with my morning coffee and am thinking about what you might want to see on the blog today.  Last night I was chatting with KJ of Silver Parrot, and realized how fun it was to just swap links on stuff we bought this past week. I thought well, if that's fun for me, that would probably be fun for a reader like you, too. So I thought I'd show off some of my recent bead purchases.

Raku Rounds, Kelleys Beads

Happy Tears, glass head pins from Gardanne Beads

Bumpy Bead set, Jasio

Mr. Fox, Humblebeads


Pop Bottle Cap Buttons, Fluxplay


Night Song Focal, Humblebeads


Minerals Stones, Crazy Cat Glass


Ceramic Mug, Coasters, and Plate, Eri Pottery

Might I add, that this new pottery is just absolutely BRILLIANT in design.
Eri makes incredible work, I love the details on her pieces.
They are lightweight, and thin, and gorgeous and textural. You HAVE to check out Eri's Shop.
It's really great!

So what did you buy this week?? Show me some links!


See you all on Tuesday! Have a great holiday!

  8. Gail W.- that's MY problem- too much time staring at delicious supplies on the net! And then I'm drowning in supplies, thinking when will I ever be able to finish all my projects.... But then, when I'm tired of making and go upstairs to bed, the computer calls to me... and I'm back to my old ways again.
    I got some lovely blood red faceted briolettes for super cheap here:
    etsy.com/shop/Loosebeadshop

    some gorgeous opalite flowers here:
    etsy.com/shop/allthingsbeaded

    some slobber-worthy pyrite chunks and freshwater coins
    etsy.com/shop/BeadFrenZ

    but my best haul came from the street markets of uruguay:

  13. Oh, Lorelei! I am in love with that pottery. It's the perfect color and style. I'll have to give Eri a look-sie. I spent a few hundred dollars on gems this week. Yikes! And I bought them right before BeadFest Wire. What was I thinking???

  14. Thank you for writing about my works! I'm very glad you like my pieces :-)

    You bought new nice beads! I'm looking forward to jewelries from them. I also want to try to jewelry parts with my pattern some day..., but it looks difficult!!

  15. Hi Eri!
    My goodness, I would just LOVE it if you could put your talents into beads! I think that would be fantastic. I totally have faith in you that you could do a wonderful job. You should definitely try, even if it's just around flat pendants!!
    Would love to see anything you come up with!

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