Hello, December!

'Tis the season to make people shiny things! :)

That's right... on my worktable this week: Christmas presents! Hurray! 

But, sadly, I can't really show any of those here. At least, not yet. Humbug.

So, since I don't really have anything else I can show off, project-wise, I figure I'll share some of my new beadie acquisitions instead... Namely, the beads that I bought during Black Friday sales.

Top to bottom: carnelian, peach aventurine, red aventurine, hessonite garnet

Top to bottom: smoky quartz, smoky lemon quartz,
green aventurine (light and dark), labradorite

Top to bottom: aquamarine, amethyst, rose quartz

...And that's not even including the turquoise!

Yes, Bead Box Bargains is wonderful. Their stock is variable due to the overstock nature of their business model, but it's always a good deal. (They currently have some tourmaline rondelles in stock that I want... *looks at them longingly*) In any case, they have filled my worktable with all sorts of gemstone possibilities... happy things to poke at, once all of the Christmas presents are done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see what I'm up to... Happy December, everyone!


  1. Black Friday Bead Shopping!? I hadn't even considered that. Looks like you got some real beauties. I do hope you share what you did make for gifts! I'm looking forward to it!!

    1. Last year was the first time that I thought to do Black Friday Bead Shopping... it's pretty much the best thing ever. I don't even have to leave my house and fight the crowds! Oh, and the following Monday, Cyber Monday, can also reveal some great deals. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! :)
