A wonderful package of silver colored base metal beads arrived in the mail yesterday from Cindy Lavin at www.beading-arts.com. The package included rondells, barrels, and toggles from Cherry Tree Beads from Asheville, NC.
I have purchased beads from Cherry Tree Beads at the Intergalactic Bead Show. If you get an opportunity be sure to visit their booth- they have a great selection.
As for the beads I won- the picture is only part of the story. What you can't tell is the weight of the beads; they feel solid, rich, and substantial. These beads will hold up to daily wear!
Thanks Cindy I will put these to good use.
