New Large Hole Beads

I've also been really enjoying making these new large hole beads - the ammonites in particular.  But I am also having a lot of fun picking out colors of the 10 billion pieces of murrini I have and putting them on large hole beads too!  You can find these in my etsy store too!










New Headpins!

I got a new toy, and made tons of new pretty flower headpins!  You can find them in my SueBeads etsy store right now! Here's some photos!
