A while back (October) I went to San Diego, and I showed you beads from one of the bead shops I visited. This is the next set - from The Black Bead right down by the beach in San Diego. It was in a funky neighborhood on Newport Avenue. These beads are (in order) Russian Amazonite, Blue Opal, and Imperial Turquoise. I really like the turquoise - can't wait to use it! The beads in that store were pretty expensive, which is why I only got these three strands. But they are all pretty!
