Bead Table Wednesday
AKA on a Bead Bender

Yay, it's Bead Table Wednesday!  
And I've actually got stuff on my bead table this time...

So I've been on a bit of a bead buying bender lately.  I'm sure you know what that's like.  Indulging in something you shouldn't indulge in quite so heavily ;)  It's been bad lately.  I see a bead, I want a bead, I buy a bead.  And then hoard it.  And don't put it away.  Really, makes for a huge mess....

What do you see in there?  Other than lots o' stuff?  Czech glass.  Tons.  Turquoise.  Amazonite.  Lapis.  Labradorite.  Czech glass.  Rose Quartz.  Sterling Silver Bezels.  Czech Glass.  Honking Huge Howlite.  Hot pink jade.  Czech Glass.

I'm starting to think I need an Intervention.  Not, mind you, that I necessarily *want* an intervention.  Oh.  And yeah.  What you see.  Not all of what I've gotten.  I didn't show you the wire.  Copper wire.  Brass wire.  Sterling filled wire.  I love me some wire.

And what I am doing with all this goodness?  Other than hoarding it?  Here's a sneak peek.  Ignore the model.  And the cat scratches on said model.  And remember to not hold kitten when four year old starts screeching and grabbing at your legs looking for attention.  Ouch.

Bouquet pendant
features brass soldered circle and Czech glass flowers
hung on brown leather cord
and yeah, iPad photo - not the best

I'm working on some simpler necklace designs for a show I'm doing in about 2 weeks.  We'll see how these go over!  Production mode, that's where I am right now :)

Anyway, there's what's on my bead table this lovely Wednesday.  
What's on yours?  

And don't forget to check out the Flickr group for more BTW goodness...

I've been on a bead buying bender too. I made myself stop yesterday and started putting them all in the computer. No more until Bead and Button!

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who buys and hoards. Your visible collection is just lovely!
