Something Quick and a Shopping Tip

Somewhere in the midst of creating the Turquoise Slab Necklace I said I was going to make something simple, or was that fast?


You may recall these earrings made from test beaded beads somewhere in the process of the Turquoise Slab Necklace.











I really liked these.  Thus, I am repeating the design with left over beaded beads and additional Lucite flowers.

Shopping Tip:  I am out of Fireline.  I use 6 lb Fireline for my bead weaving.  I never buy Fireline at a bead shop, it is too pricey.  I have been buying Fireline at K-Mart where you can get 150 yds for about $17.00.  (It is with the fishing gear)  Yesterday K-Mart did not have what I wanted.  This morning, I  ordered 300 yds of Fireline on Amazon for about $24.00 + shipping.

  1. These are sweet, beaded beads are so versatile aren't they? I've got lots of designs in mind incorporating beaded beads

    1. They are versatile. I just love this particular application. I also thought they would nicely set-off a focal in a bracelet. Of course I also love bracelets that are composed entirely of beaded beads.

  2. They're adorable. The one with the black flower topper reminds me of a fancy little acorn.

    I bought some fireline from a shop on Amazon about a year ago and got that same fantastic deal, but have not been able to relocate that particular shop. :( 300 yards of 6lb fireline is almost a steal. :)

    1. Amazon was the seller not just the shipper. I was tempted to buy the even bigger spool but that was just the issue the spool was big and I want to be able to travel with my beads.
