I'm back...with new beads!

I had a pretty amazing trip and bought soooo many new beads and cabochons. This is the most I've bought at one time in quite a while! I found such amazing new stone and I cleared out some vintage items too.

Sadly, even before I left I knew I was coming down with something. Sure enough, I was sick for the last week and a half, though it seems to have finally receded.

In the meantime, I've been working as hard as I could on new listings! I'm a little over halfway through now. Here are a few of my favorites:

14 mm round rutilated quartz round beads on eBay

Gorgeous faceted ametrine beads on eBay

Vintage reproduction offset leaf beads on eBay

One of my favorite purchases--shiva eye shell beads, on Etsy

So many beads, so little time! I'm nearly done with the sorting, but I'm still trying to get everything listed. I still have a huge set of vintage brass stampings, more vintage reproduction beads, and some semiprecious beads left, as well as a huge selection of new semiprecious stone cabochons.

Stay tuned, there's lots more to come!

In which I pop up just to say goodbye for a month

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I updated!

During that time I restructured my entire eBay store, relisted hundreds of items with new photos, had a very small flood in the basement, and a few other minor but inconveniencing things occur. Plus the holidays and visitors get the picture!

I don't think I've ever been so busy with my business before. I've gone a little crazy trying to keep up with the regular business while updating my whole eBay store. I have taken 4000 pictures in under two months.

Now that it's all finished, I am running away for a month on a business trip. I'll be buying all sorts of new and delicious fabulous beads and cabochons. I am planning on making this my most splendiferous trip yet--I am so excited about what to buy!

I probably won't have time to update this blog until I get back, but you can always follow me on twitter at @laurelmoonjewel and I also update my Facebook fanpage at Laurel Moon Jewelry & Beads while I'm gone.

I hope you all have a lovely beadful winter--see you at the end of February!
