this week, my favorite color is pink

beads beads beads beads beads... these are the lovelies I picked up this weekend at Bead Breakout in Rochester. I fell in love with the Chevron beads, the pearls were super inexpensive, the coral beads were the prettiest pink (and I told Kerry she should not allow me to buy anything green because for the life of me, I can't stop buying green beads), the crazy lace matched all the other beads I bought, and I love the pink and yellow hues. The copper spacers were such a steal and I have been wanting more of these since I went on the Bead Cruise and Heather Powers got some for me at the bead shop in New Orleans.
Here are some more of my goodies. I found these cool News Print beads, which I think they also sell at Fire Mountain Gems. And that enameled magnetic clasp is from C-Koop beads and Kerry and I loved the colors in it. That was the only art bead I bought. Aren't you'all proud of me!?? I have to take a break buying art beads. I need filler!!


Kerry and I had fun collaborating on a necklace. You'll see more on that later this week, in a video we did. Beading with a buddy- nothing beats it!!


Then Sunday I got back into the studio and tried hard to create some nice Springy- Mother Inspired things for the shop. These were both listed, but the bracelet sold! IT CAN BE RECREATED, just shoot me a convo!
The necklace above is still hanging out in the shop. Be sure to check it out and take advantage of the free shipping and 20% off all of my prices!

  9. hey stefanie,
    I'm not sure where that bead store gets them from. I bought them at Bead Breakout in Rochester NY. I can see if I can contact them to find out where they order them from.

  10. These are all sublime. You are quite the busy little beader.
    I sent your package off yesterday for the swap and forgot to add something. So you will receive two packages from me. Oops!

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