New Beads Listed

I just listed some new beads in the etsy store, most notably the two you see above! The Trio is made from ivory and silver plum, and etched. The tab focal is made from light turquoise and raku! Remember, turquoise is the color of the year!!!

Tonight, my daughter has her Upper School Orchestra Concert. In addition to the alto saxophone, the band director bought a baritone saxophone for her to play - it must weigh as much as she does! I hope to get a good photo of her playing it tonight - they tend to put those large instruments in the back, so hopefully I can get one! I'll post it tomorrow!

Also, Nancy from Round Rabbit Extra sent me my bead soup package and I received it today. I will take a photo and post that tomorrow too! She does such nice work!

Beautiful beads, Sue...I love the turquoise focal.

Good luck to your daughter on her concert! My hubby is a sax player and teacher and has rocked the bari sax on occasion! It is a behemoth :)

New Enamel Beads Listed

I just listed a bunch of enameled beads in the SueBeads etsy store. I'm going to be taking a week off. I'm going to leave the shop open, so if you purchase anything from the 10th - 18th of July, they will mail on the 19th! Thanks so much for your patience!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!

These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
