New pretty long stem Czech glass flower earrings in the shop


I came up with this design a while ago and then ran out of the lovely Czech pressed glass beads. So I reordered a bunch and took new pictures and they are aqualongstemear2

now available in our shop.


All the lovely bright colors make me happy and really brighten up the tone in our Etsy shop.


They have become one of my personal favorite everyday earrings.


They are made with 18 gauge sterling silver wire which makes them a little thicker than the typical earwire so they may not work well for everyone.


You can find them all in the Glass Earrings/ Pendants section of our Etsy shop:

New beads!


A couple of days ago my favorite crazy bead salesman and friend Peter came through and set up my own personal bead show in my driveway for a few hours. Peter travels to Asia half the year and buys beads in Hong Kong and other places and then travels in the US the other half of the year selling his special handpicked goodies. I always spend more than I intend to and get filled with good stories from his wild traveling experiences.


These are some yummy gemmy British Columbian nephrite jade beads that I couldn’t resist. I’m a sucker for green stones.

Oh I have so much work to do now that I spent all that money on new beads!
