2nd Annual Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

                           Lots and lots of beads in my craft room'' oh ''my god.

I love beads and when I buy them its for that special jewelry piece but sometimes that special piece will take a long time for it to be designed. I have precious beads ,semi-precious and the very inexpensive but pretty beads.I don't a problem mixing them all  because it makes the piece unusual .I also have a collection of buttons ,zippers and fabric that I also incorporate in my designs. About two months ago  I took out my bead organizer and decided to make something with those forgotten beads, enjoy.

  6. Wow were you ever busy! I adore the necklace with the ribbon and the buttons. I have jars and jars of vintage buttons that I have hoarded but I now feel compelled to make something after seeing you piece.

    I also love the keepsake box with the zipper trim and vintage hankie? So very pretty!

  11. Nicely done. All the jewelry is pretty, but the box is inspiring. Too often we do not look past jewelry when making use of our beads. I am going to keep this in mind for future creations.

  17. The Coach Replica Handbags swiss Swagger Chanel Replica swiss Satchel is Replica Handbags UK featured in Metallic Blue, but you can choose the warm tone version of Cherry Red, Replica Handbags swiss which is just as striking in its elegant metallic finish. This satchel appears way more expensive than its retail value of $450. The Swagger is also available in so many other material options, such as pebbled leather and patchwork. thank you
