Bead Porn Part Deux



I have been having so much with the Swap N Hop. As I have told everyone, I was lucky enough to be blessed with a couple partners and I wanted to show everyone the stash that I sent Lee.  The elephant is from Okawa African Beads, the lampwork bowes from Mandrel 2 and the brass butterflies, one that I colored. I also included magnesite, agate, some gun metal chain and a fun elephant clasp.



The real porn however was the true beauties that Lee sent to me. She sent me a variety of artisan glass and ceramic. The real treasures however is the clasp and bracelet bar in that Lee made herself. She sent along the bar as an extra present for me and I am so in love since if you asked me for one word to sum me up and I would say Witch.



Lee also sent along a note saying she doesn't wrap except for wire so she tied my goodies up with sari silk. Score!  Not only did get some lovely silk but this is a woman after my own heart. There is a reason why little organza bags were invented.



Lee also sent along a wonderful supporting cast. There is Czech glass, serpentine, brass, crystal and shell. So many goodies that I know I will have extras. How can anyone get to be so lucky?



Now to find the time to disappear and create. I will be showing off all I make from the porn....err beads that I have gotten on May 2nd. Be sure to stop back by because a little birdie let me know that I will be holding a contest then also.

  1. Shai, I am SO glad you loved that bracelet bar. I noticed all the beautiful bracelets in your shop so I took a chance that you were a bracelet kind of gal. Hope to see some cool stuff with your stash.
