The title of this post is a bit redundant. That statement is obvious from the name of my blog! But that is why I like posting photos of new beads I get. I like the beads themselves more than any piece of jewelry I’ve ever made. So, here we go!
Then I got some yummy eye candy from Lisa Lodge of Pine Ridge Treasures. She started a destash page on Facebook. If you love beads and a good destash event, you should join. I love destash because it is a good way to get a nice variety of beads from someone else’s stash. They’ve done all the collecting work. I got a nice selection of green beads. Never met a green bead I didn’t like. These actually do look like candy. Green licorice allsorts or something!
These next beads are the first I was drawn to in the destash sale because I’ve been looking for some purple spacers. (Unfortunately, I don’t know the artist of these beads.) I saw this gorgeous necklace by D’Arsie Manzella of Mamacita Beadworks. I have saved a few jewelry treasures from my youth and have a heart similar to this green one in her necklace, except mine is purple. I love how she’s used these little spacers, so this purple group will come in handy.
