A Rainy Morning

It's late in the day, as I write this post, but I promised to do my earring giveaway today. So here we go: THE WINNER IS..."GIVEAWAY DIVA"! I will be contacting you for your mailing info. Congrats!

Now, let me whet your appetite with some beads that I got at the bead show on Friday.
First, I bought a big batch of Kazuri ceramic beads. Lots of pretty colors. I was drawn to the pearlized gray beads; I don't know why, but I envisioned making something with labradorite gemstone. Maybe something vintage looking, with brass components (we'll see).

I didn't go overboard at this bead show, so I just picked up some pearls and Swarovski crystals that I needed and a few gemstone cabs, that I think I will use as focals on necklaces, probably wrapped in filigree. I found a (new to me) lampwork artist team, "FORWARD MOTION ART". They have shops on Ebay, Etsy, and their own website. I bought 2 pairs of boro lampwork beads, which you can see in the back of the photo, peachy colored ones and the purple/green ones, that I've already made earrings with and plan to post in my Etsy shop. I have plans for the peachy ones for earrings too!

Now here's a quick peak at a project that I'm currently working on for a team challange. This is for March's "TEAM FILIGREE" challange. And I hope to have it completed and posted over on that blog this week. (You can find it over in the side bar for "Team Filigree".

Well, that's all for today. Hope you enjoyed the eye candy!
