Recent Goodies!

My poor blog has been neglected of late, so I thought I would tease you today with some of the goodies that have arrived in my mailbox lately.

This lovely array of colors is a selection of silicone beads I got from this lovely Etsy seller.  I still need to make the intended project with them, so I will do nothing more than show you their lovely velvety brightness!

A surprise package arrived in the mail from my buddy Lennis, of Windbent.  We share many similar tastes in beads - you can tell, right?  Just look at all those goodies!  A lovely collection of Venetian millefiore beads, a sugar skull pendant by Andrew Thornton, a raku skull cabochon by Harry of OscarCrow, a collection of lampwork and porcelain spacers, and a bright tomato red sun and moon cab by Firefly Design Studio.  I love it all!

Lennis is a great mixed media jewelry artist, that likes to repurpose vintage jewelry and found objects.  She made this great brooch for me!  Not only will it work perfectly with my Time Sharer steampunk costume...but I can also wear it on some of my new work jackets and sweaters.  I love wearing a brooch as a cardigan closure - it adds shape and interest to an otherwise boxy and plain garment.

Do you remember back in October when I one the Art Bead Scene blog challenge?  (Check this post if you don't)  Well, I was finally able to choose my prize from FanceeThat on Etsy.  Lisa was kind enough to throw in a few extras.  I have a plan for a couple of these things...I definitely know what I'm going to do with the desert colored disks in the upper left corner.

Tomorrow morning I have my Sunday Funday post going up, and my post over at the Art Jewelry Elements blog.  Be sure to check them both out!  And don't forget my Facebook page and Etsy shop - I hope to be updating both in the near future.  As always, thanks for looking!
