heart fringed, Art Beads package

At long last I've made another jewelry piece with some of my Swarovski stash from the Art Beads Blogging program. Like many of my creative endeavors, this does not look like my original vision for this set of beads, particularly the hearts. I am really happy with the final result, though, and will most likely try some variations of it in the future.

If you're interested, you can get the round red Swarovskis and the raspberry bicone Swarovskis from Art Beads by clicking on the names. They also have lots of new XILION Bicones, including these gorgeous Dark Indigo ABs.

While I'm on the subject of Art Beads, I got a surprise package from them this weekend. It included a 2010 Art Beads calendar, a $20 gift card for Art Beads, and a 10% share the savings card for Art Beads, all for being part of the Blogging for Beads program!

It's too bad that I didn't have any new items to photograph at this point in the weekend because the weather was gorgeous and the lighting was AMAZING. I also got a shot of my favorite picture from the calendar. I'm sure that you can figure out why I like it so much.

I already spent my gift card. I will share a picture of my goodies when they arrive. :)


  1. What a pretty bracelet! I was going to do the ArtBeads blogging program but thought I was too late so didn't respond. Guess I need to check it out again! Can't wait to see what else you make with your goodies from them!

  2. Thank you! I will leave you a comment about the blogging program in case you don't see this. :) It's really been a lot of fun. I'm thinking about making something similar to the raspberry design but in blue. I'm also planning a tan/olive green/off white design with some of my Swarovskis.

  3. Another gorgeous piece! I love Swarovski beads - I used to work for this company in Austria looooong time ago!

    btw, I have given you an award. Feel free to pick it up when you have time!

  4. Thank you Duni! I should have time to post it on my blog later today when I'm at home. :)
