destash time

Ideas and designs change and yet the amount of beads just increases. Those of you who make jewellery know what I am mean and probably like me you have oooodles of beads you are not using at the moment. When the now 4months old (where has the time go?) pickle was on the way I lost my "studio" as it had to become the guest room and currently my beads are strewn all over the dining room table. This means I am in the dog house and need to do some serious clearing out and tidying up. So, I have joined the April Show-ers over on Folksy and am trying to list an item a day. This is mainly going to be destash items, all in new unused condition. All bought with the idea of using them at some point but a few months even years later they are still there bagged up waiting for me to work some magic.

So, here are a few items I've already listed. Some hilltribe silver flower charms - aren't they gorgeous. Why not head over to my Folksy destash shop and grab yourself some lovely beadies at good prices. I need to clear some space ;)

Sea Foam

Gorgeous beads by EvaBean now made into a stunning jewellery set. The lampwork are a beautiful sea green with an organic insert. I continued the sea theme using hiltribe silver beads with a bubble pattern and faceted aventurine rondelles to compliment the lampwork.

I am really pleased with the pendant which features a wave of handwired aventurine rondelles dangling from the lampwork focal. The pendant comes with either a 16inch or 18inch silver curb chain. All are available over in my folksy shop. I hope you like them.
