I'm a sucker for anything in blues and this piece that was designed by Lisa of dancingraindesigns definitely caught my interest. I really can't pinpoint down exactly what I love about it, but I think it is the combination of the variety of beads combining aqua, brown, and bronze which makes the bracelet just sing with color! Add her hand forged copper spirals and Shepherds hook clasp just finish off the piece perfectly! As usual, I am as always floored by the beautiful designs that my buyers create!
Another beautiful creation using a combination of beads including the Mykonos Aegean Tube beads. The one thing I do love about the Tube beads is that you really get to see the wonderful color combination's on this long bead. Jamie of HaiKorInc sent me these pictures of her necklace and I love the combination of beads she chose. And as I have said before, you really have to see these gorgeous designs in person. Pictures just don't do the creations justice! This necklace so full of color and definitely a lovely length to wear with the summer dresses and blouses coming out this Summer. Please check out these two wonderful designers shops. You will be in for a treat!

Well, here is another unusual creation that has the Mykonos Greek Ceramic beads included into its design! I am constantly amazed at the wide diversity of ideas that turn into creations. This lovely shawl was created by Inger of ingermaaike. I am a total novice when it comes to knowing what and how Nuno Felting is done. When I received the picture of her shawl I had to do a little investigating into the subject. What an interesting way to create something so beautiful that is light and airy too! I like the idea that you can add additional elements to your design. To me it almost seems like a blank canvas that can be drawn on with whatever adornments you wish to include. Paint a picture! What a neat idea! For more check out Inger's shop on Etsy!
