New Acquisitions

Ohmygoodness. The studio these days is a real mess. There is stuff everywhere and that is exactly how the inside of my head is feeling these days. I'm not sure how I can work effectively in this atmosphere, but I do have hopes of cleaning it up tonight.  Organization needs to occur, but in order to do that, a destash may have to happen, as well- to make room for new stuff.

I have been trying to purchase a little at a time, some new strands of beads. I got a package from yesterday.... glass pearls, freshwater pearls, blue agate rounds, chrysoprase tumbled nuggets, bronzite rounds, Russian amazonite nuggets, and my favorite- Lemon Chrysoprase faceted ovals.

I also ordered some cool enameled pieces by C-Koop Beads- large rings, and flower pairs, one of which I used in this pair of earrings from last night's session. I am digging how they turned out. How do you like the more feminine look of these? Too outside my box? I love anything layered lately.

I also placed an order for a few more gemstones today, from I chose some green kyanite, faceted pearls, rutilated quartz, Peach Muscovite, and some prehnite ovals.

So now, I must make room for these in my bead bins. Now.... what to do with all these unwanted beads..............
