New Shop Items...

I've just uploaded some of my finds from Tucson in my shop. I even added two new sections to the shop reflecting some of the goodies I found. It'll take me some time to get everything listed, but I wanted to share some of these great things!

After talking with Bob Burkett before we headed off to Tucson this year, I was afraid that he wouldn't be able to make it. Luckily he was able to come and he brought LOTS of cool new things. One of my favorites (which I happily snapped up as many as he would let me) were these CUTE tiny shibuichi skull beads. They are smaller than a dime and are just adorable. These would be perfect in earrings or on a charm bracelet. I added these to the NEW Bob Burkett Bead section and the Skull Shop.

Back when I started the shop, I had a small selection of work from Ashes to Beauty. For years they were our neighbors at the Bead & Button show in Milwaukee, but lately they haven't been there and it has been increasingly more difficult to track down their work. Luckily I ran into them in Tucson and found some really awesome pieces. I was really charmed by their line of hand-shaped components like the bronze one pictured above. Doesn't it remind you of a cross between a milagro, a Victorian motif, and a French door-knocker? I featured it, along with several others, it the newly resurrected Ashes to Beauty components section.

I'll be adding more to the shop soon, but you better get ahold of these goodies before I'm all out!

I love the Ashes to Beauty components! And I miss them at Bead and Button too. We all watched their kids grow, it was fun. The hand is spectacular.

I love my Bob skull.

NICE set
