WoooHoooo! Mama Hit the Mother Load!

I went through some of the bags and boxes of beading supplies again today. This time, I hit the mother load!

I am so excited! I found a copper colored crystal that I knew I had, but couldn't find. I found some small black daggers with a kind of peacock finish on one side that I had forgotten I had. I found the bag of beads I had put aside to make a bracelet or necklace for a friend, some short cut bugle beads I had forgotten about, some beautiful marcasite (I think that's what it's called) beads that I thought I had already used, more colors of Swarovsky crystals, some beads they used to call miracle beads (they look different at different angles), and a pair of earrings I made about 8 years ago.  I found a lot more than this, but this will be enough to keep me busy for a little while, I am sure.

I am going to take the earrings apart and redo them. I strung them on wire and they are really stiff. So, I am going to restring them on the fishing line I now use. Then, I am going to take the same beads in turquoise and gold seed beads and make another pair the opposite of the ones shown.

WooooHoooo! Mama hit the mother load this morning!.

  1. Beautiful! Glad you found some of your "lost" beads. I think it's time I cleared off my mats and did some straightening up. I have a whole room to myself and I still can't find things I know "I just saw a few days ago". Post pics of your pretties when you're finished.
