Great Bead Finds!!

So in the tradition of Kelly Morgan at Silver Parrot, I thought I would give you my first bead "porn" post.  lol. I discovered CBeads on Etsy recently and fell in love with these colourful beads. She has a great selection of wonderful czech glass beads and lentil beads. I also had to have these...

Yummy! So many colours! You can find some great deals on some wholesale lots Here . That is where I found these beauties. I will have to visit her etsy shop again.

Here are some really nice red czech glass beads from Mountain Shadow Design's. I have been trying to branch out and get something other than green in my designs. I thought these and the next ones might help.

Similar to the first, but a tad different.

I also found another shop with some fun charms for my now quite popular charm bracelets. Olay, they have soooo many interesting pieces that I have not seen anywhere else yet. I can not wait to get them.

These are quite cute, I want to mix them with some of those red czech glass beads and ??? we will see.
Te next ones are leaves. I am really into leaves right now. I love to add them to my designs for a touch of nature. Some are fresh and fun and others have more of a fall texture.

I guess now you will have to keep checking in to see what I create with them.

Keep coming back!!

Great finds Marie! I can't wait to see what you do with them. I like the red ones...and they have a greenish cast to them and might look really nice with some olive toned beads...thanks for sharing your sources, I will have to check them out! Enjoy the day! Erin

ROFL! I am laughing, but glad you have also fallen into the bead porn trap ;-) Now I don't feel so alone in my blatant consumerism of all things beady.

I love what you got and may have to visit some of those shops myself now. In fact, I'm working on a bracelet right now and was just thinking that I need some small brass leaf charms for it.

Funny how great minds think alike!

Thanks Marie for posting my picasso mix donuts and lentils. They are my bestseller. Can't wait to see what are you going to make out of them. Must create a link my shop once you finish them. Again, a pleasure working with you.
