Wanted to show you a necklace that I finished last night while the kids were at Bible School (it's amazing how much you can get done without interruptions ;))  Anyway, I really like how it turned out.  You can check it out HERE on my website.

Have a great weekend!

I got some new frit blends and am lovin' the results.  I especially love this first one with the golds and brown.  It has some goldstone in it which really gives it some sparkle.  I put the bead sets on sale for this week only from $40 down to $33.  I can't wait to design with this yellow/brown set!

Another fun set with some orange, blues and a little green.

Wednesday's Sets on sale!!!

This is some glass I kind of forgot about as it is made from a different company.  I don't have a ton of it, but enough to make a few sets.  Love both of these.  The first is made with brown and a pinkish color.  Looks great with andalusite.  The second is a nice blue and brown.  Both sets will retail for $40, but are on sale today for $30!  (glass is a little more expensive than others)

Week of Sales

Throughout the week I will be posting some sets on sale.  Each day I will have a new set (or 2) that will range from $25 to $30 (that is up to $10 off a set.)  Each of the sets will be a new set that is not on my website yet (except for this first set.)  In the comments box you can leave me a note to hold the order until the end of the week (if you think you might by more) so you can pay for shipping only once.

Hope you enjoy the beads I post this week.

I few new designs I have been working on.  I just love the last necklace with those metallic black beads.  I put some copper with them and think that necklace turned out nice.

You might remember this set I made for my mother in law for helping with the kids while I went to the bead and button show.  Well, I finally made some more beads like that to put on my website.  I also added a super fun set of dichroic on black crystals.

Ipod Touch for sale ~ Brand New

I have a second generation ipod touch that I am going to sell.   Apple is doing a promo that teachers and students get a free ipod touch with a purchase of a new computer.  I bought a Macbook Pro (I can't wait to get it on Friday)  I love everything Apple, well really all digital stuff, but especially products made by Apple.  Anyway, I already have an ipod touch, and love it, so I am going to sell this one.  It is an 8gb, 2nd generation ipod touch.  Can get a picture of it later if you need it.  They retail for $230, send me an email if you are interested.  I will probably list it on ebay, but thought I would mention it here first.

And the focals

Lots of new beads added these last couple days.  Hope you are enjoying them!  Hopefully I will get some torch time this week, but as you can imagine it is a little ore difficult with 4 little children home for the summer.

The sets have been added

I had a little time to get the bead sets added.  Later I will be adding some focal beads.  Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.

Pictures coming

The last set of these sold right away, but I did have a little bit of glass yet to make another set.  I just added it to me website.  I was able to get out yesterday and get some pictures, so be looking for those soon.

Jonas Bros

The weather here hasn't been the best, so therefore I haven't been able to take any pictures of new beads.  I do have a fun picture to show you though.  My sister and mom went to a Jonas Brothers concert (I am sure anyone with little girls has heard of this band)  Anyway she won a pass for a meet and greet to see them in person.  She has been a huge fan of the Jonas Brothers before they were even well known, so this was really a dream come true for her.  Cute picture Huh ?!?!

On a roll with the rounds

Here are a few more round sets that I just added to the website.  

The metallic black set I listed yesterday sold right away, but I think I have enough glass for one more set, so check back for when that will be listed.

Thanks so much for checking my blog!

Coolest beads ever

I am loving this glass!  I have had this glass for awhile, but could never get the colors to pop like I had seen it was suppose to do.  It is a very expensive glass (all of these colors come from one rod of glass!), so I didn't play with it too much because I didn't want to waste it.  I got it out again the other day and WOW!!!  I finally got the colors I was hoping for.  This is amazing and I love the beads so much.  I only have 1 rod left and will be ordering some more soon.  Grab this set while you can.  I had to make a pair of earrings right away with it.

A few new pairs of earrings ( all added to my website to purchase)

A few days ago I put on a picture of my bead board with a project I was working on. I finished it over the weekend and here it is.  It is so hard to get a good photo, but the colors look great together.  There is also a pair of matching earrings.

Hope everyone had a great 4th.  Here in Iowa it was rainy and cold.  Sure didn't seem like the 4th this year with the weather and the fact it was on a Saturday.  We were able to enjoy the fireworks, so it ended good.
