Bead Soup Blog Party - Bead Hoarders Edition

It's been quite a while since I posted on my blog and a lot of things have happened since I've been gone, but the creating is still happening!

So I was able to join in another Bead Soup Blog Party but this one was a little different...Hoarders edition! Who is a hoarder? Really? No one that is a crafter that I know of!!! Wink!

I had no problem fulfilling this call! This is the package of "hoarded" beads that I bought several years ago from a local bead show that I sent to my partner, Janeen Burlingame....
She made some wonderful pieces out if all these goodies.

So this is the package of hoarded beads Janeen sent to me.,.
Beautiful, right?? I love earthy colors and have big ideas for the tan ceramic piece to make another bracelet! Here is what I have made so far....
I made lovely matching bracelet and earrings. I also made this earthy long necklace...Just my speed! I had a hard time finding beads in my stash that had holes big enough for the leather cord but found some!! They matched perfectly and were another part if my hoard, ahem stash.

So what do you think??  I will have some links added in the next few days so you can visit my partner and Pinterest boards.

Well it's time for bed. Thanks for following me if you are and thanks for just stopping by if your just passing through.

Ciao Friends...
Bev
