Haberdashery Blog Hop

Melissa Trudinger, of Bead Recipes, is hosting a haberdashery blog hop today!  I had signed up, and that was in addition to the COM for AJE I had to do, and the Toltec Chicklets Blog Hop that's tomorrow, and being in the midst of Bead Fest prep!  So needless to say, I had a hard time coming up with anything!  Luckily I already had some pieces I made that incorporated my love of buttons!  I can remember playing with the jars of buttons that my grandmother would keep - she was quite a seamstress!

 This is made with my chicklet beads, and a great flower button and indonesian glass.

 Another chicklet/flower button combo - with indonesian glass as well!

 Finally, a piece I made with a beautiful thistle button and glass pearls. 

Please check out what everyone else made, and thank you Melissa for hosting a fun hop.

I love your color combinations and your chicklets! Using nature themed buttons with the glass flowers was a really great idea.

Lovely pieces, especially your first bracelet.
Hi Sue:
You made some pretty bracelets. You used some nice buttons. My favorite is the three strand bracelet with your Chiclets and the Indonesian glass. The colors work so well together.
Dolores Raml said…
Gorgeous bracelets, really love the chicklet beads and how you used them.
kmorgan said…
The button clasps are wonderful! I love the chicklets but I think my favorite is the last bracelet. It's so hard to choose a favorite since I really like them all! :)

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.
