I’ve been busy making some orders (thank you!) and I haven’t been posting many beady photos. So I thought I’d post some photos of items you can pick up in the SueBeads web store for your fall designs! These items have been in the catalog for a while now; they are always favorites!
Do you know Zu? She makes great polymer clay beads, and sells them on etsy. I found her when I saw the beautiful sunflower beads she made – I had an idea in my head that they would go with some lampwork beads that I had made. We contacted each other, and did a trade! I purchased the sunflower ones (first photo), and traded her two hilton head beach lentils for another set of her pairs (mostly like the second photo). I love them all. Right now, I haven’t made anything with them. I just hold them and look at them. She puts so much time into her canes, they are just gorgeous!!! You should check out her shop and blog!
Heather at Humblebeads is having a studio tour and giveaway – stop by and see!
Lots of new beads listed today in the SueBeads etsy store, and more to come later!
Katie recently went on a very cool vacation, and while she was gone, she made some jewelry! Here are two sets of earrings she made with my beads! The first set was made from the galaxy sparkle beads I have available in my etsy store. The second two sets were made from some nice etched turquoise blue spacers, with copper discs from Humblebeads (I love these and wish I would have bought some!!!!!). You can read Katie’s blog here!
I bought myself a little treat last week – handmade caramels from Paris Pastry Lab. I just could not resist. I bought the Sampler Box – for $12.00, I got an assortment of different caramels direct from Paris! I was so excited to receive them in the mail yesterday! I love them all, but to my surprise, I love the ones called Belleville – it has pepper on top! It tastes really great. The Trocadero ones are great too (fleur de sel). If you are looking to treat yourself in some small way, this is a great way to do it!
Kelly, of Silver Parrot, showed me a bracelet she made, and I need to show you! It’s so cute and summery – made with some of my larger hole sea glass disc beads, plus a bunch of other glass beads from some talented glass artists! I just love it. I bet you do too!
