Greedy for Beads -- and More Rose Monograms

Banner Haus News and Musings

I have almost finished my first brass necklace. I made one, was really unhappy with it, and took it apart to use in the making of another one. I have a tendency to hoard beads, and to make these "dangle drop" flower necklaces, you have to be willing to use a good amount of lovely beads. I hope to get a picture of it up for tomorrow's post! 

That's one thing about using vintage beads: Sometimes, when they are gone, they're gone. When you live in the middle of nowhere, it's hard to find good beads at estate sales. 

The internet is a big help, but I do get greedy-minded about some of the older beads, especially the lovely chartreuse ones.

    I used to wear earrings and rings all the time when I was young(and pretty) but now I just don't like anything on me anymore - it's bad enough I have this old skin to deal with ;-) Your earrings are lovely and I will wait till tomorrow to collect my S Monogram graphic :-)

    Have a nice day, m'lady :-)

    Hey Holly girl. I am inviting you to stop by my blog and check out My Inspiration page, because you are there. I appreciate you so much and don't often say that know.

  • Ms Sparrow

    Thank you for the rosy "J". I can use it for my blog sometime. It seems like antique beads would be really hard to find. Good luck with your search.
