Beads Glorious Beads......

Well I haven't been able to resist buying beads, so here's some eye candy for the jewellery / bead/ aholic's out there =) 
I try to always have a wide colour selection of beads to work with, which is easier to do with the glass beads compared to the semi precious stone's, as in having a selection in a certain cut/ style/ size of bead in the same price range, which is not always possible with gemstones as the price can vary a lot more and some stones are more delicate then others or not found often in larger sizes.
I'll admit that when I bought these beads I was thinking of WoW (World of Warcraft) which is a game where you collect all types of materials to make things as well as fighting dragons,  the smaller beads look to me as if they were made of little pieces of molten lava=)
I love this colour, it's gorgeous!
These beads make me think of blended ice coffee =)

Midnight Rockpool.....

This beautiful lampwork bead by Maya Honey is the focal point for this necklace.  I chose to use gold-filled wire, fine chain and beads for this necklace.  The beautifully faceted tear drops are inky blue Iolite which is also known as Water Sapphire.  Labradorite faceted rondelles also grace this necklace with their shimmering beauty.

The colours in this lampwork bead are gorgeous and the shapes very organic.  These little studs complement the necklace.

Sunshine + Rain =.......

Rainbow =)
I made these for a custom order, aren't the colours gorgeous!  I will be adding these colour choices to my Etsy shop as well as a few other colours ( a few meaning I didn't count when I was buying the lovely beads ;)

I've also added these fun earrings to my shop, not sure which is my favorite colour, but I think any pair would match my bright trainers, they are very colourful & bright, no pink and white for me!
