I am a LUCKY girl! After taking part in Erin's 2nd Annual Challenge of Color Hop , I was fortunate to have my name drawn to win this AMAZING bead stash! Perfectly in theme with the challenge, Erin sent me a little something from each of the colors we had to select from! I'm stunned by the generosity of this prize. So many amazing artists contributed to the stash! I think a personal challenge is in order to work my way through these gorgeous beads and pendants! (sorry for the excessive use of exclamation points - but I'm so excited!!!) A HUGE THANK YOU to Erin Prais-Hintz for this great opportunity and for arranging this great stash!
My package arrived in this sweetly ribboned box....what I noticed right away that the box was very heavy!
Imagine my delight when I pulled ALL THESE beauties out of the box.
Something from Jeannie Dukic:
Gaea - I cannot wait to play around with this one:
Sally, Birgitta Lejonklon and Julsbead!
My gosh - rhodocrosite is one of my favorite stones:
Marsha Neal were the first thing I pulled out of the box and I adore them, there is some green silk cord in there - perhaps it's time for me to step outside my comfort zone and try some fiber with my beadwork....
EB Bead & Metalwork is stunning. I don't make a lot of jewelry in red, but I can already think of some wonderful beads in my own stash that are going to go wonderfully with this:
Once again I have to say thank you so much to Erin of Treasures Found::Inspiration is Everywhere.
Blogging was on my list of tasks for today! So now I can check that off!!! (And hopefully check a lot more off so I can sneak away to the bead room tonight!)
