I like beads. A lot.
I like the colors and the textures and the shapes. I like sorting them and looking at them and buying them. I like stringing them, too, of course, but one of the best moments for me is when I bring new beads home and get to put them away.
I've bought quite a few new beads.
Opalized ammonites, lodalite quartz, agate slices, apatite, Indian bloodstone, fossilized wood, fossil coral, silver leaf jasper, carnelian, rutilated quartz...all so delicious!
I can't wait to start beading with these. Some are going to be for sale at shows, but most of this is going into my designing inventory, and I'm already dreaming of new necklaces and earrings.
