Baubles & Beads Sneak Peek

A few weeks ago, Kate Richbourg came calling. Kate is a popular jewelry instructor who has written books and produced great technique videos. She is working with the bead store Baubles and Beads and offered a chance to be a part of an inugural bead blogger team. Intrigued, I said yes. And I have found that I am in very good company! Here are the other five bloggers that will be playing along with me:
I was sent a little package of goodies that was so well labeled. I really appreciated that! Now whatever I really can't live without I can find very easily on the Baubles and Beads website.

Just look at all the fun I am going to have!


Top to bottom:
  • An assortment of interesting brass pieces. That scalloped collar is so far out of my comfort zone that it makes me giddy to give it a shot!
  • Copper wire, soft as butter leather strap in the deepest shade of purple and some soft and shiny cording in a perfect fall day palette.
  • Brass cornerless cube beads (I love these!), gray crystal pearls and a deep wine Czech glass bead with an interesting design.

What I have noticed is that we might have all received similar things, but the color palettes are different. Did they know that these are colors that I love? We will have a blog hop on September 18th to reveal what we have made. I hope you will come back and be inspired!

I promised to giveaway the little blingy owl I am calling Bij-HOOT-erie Owl from my recent blog post. And the winner of the purple owl is......


Email me your address and I will send this little owl flying over to your nest! I hope it inspires you!

Please join me here tomorrow, Saturday, August 30th for the reveal of the 2nd Annual Challenge of Travel - Staycation edition. I did a little more photo safari-ing this morning and I think I am ready to start beading my treasure. (Yes. I just admitted that I haven't even started my own project. How is that for fashionably late to your own party?)

Oh, the collar was in fact the first thing my eye was drawn to... I just have to check now how much the shipping would be because this is definitely something my hands are itching to work with! In fact I was already looking for big metall blanks to use as a collar as a stable basis for polymer clay.

I saw Michelle's reveal of what she received too as part of this team and it looks like y'all have some great, fun bits to play with. I'm anxious to see what you make with that awesomeness.
Oh, and I'm so excited about the owl! Thank you :)
