I had a look around Sue's Etsy shop and I really liked the River Dance Focal bead and the large hole matt beads!

Lisa Tracy said...

You gotta be kidding me? You want us to choose only ONE favorite? But Sue’s work is exquisite!!! Grumble, grumble, grumble… I really like Sue’s Gray Galaxy Earring Pair: http://www.etsy.com/listing/64193100/suebeads-gray-galaxy-earring-pair. Their subtle frosted finish is exquisite and I love this understated color (which is an unusual choice for me). But I also really like Sue’s enameled components, especially these three:
Set of enameled keys: http://www.etsy.com/listing/56608968/suebeads-forest-enameled-keys-set-hand
Blue sprockets: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62339814/suebeads-blue-sprockets-hand-enameled
Ruffled bead caps: http://www.etsy.com/listing/63452973/suebeads-blue-green-enamel-ruffled-bead

Hannah said...

Cynthia said...

I looked on her etsy site. I stand by my earlier comment. The filigree beads, in any color, are my favorite.

Okay, I went to Sue's Etsy shop and no way was it easy to pick out one thing I really liked! But pressed for a choice, I'd have to say I really love the sugar beads ~ specifically the blue ones! Yum, yum!

Susan said...

Well, now I have just returned from Sue's website and I think that the "Hilton Head" beads are just superb!!!!

I love each new thing Sue does! I have some of her silvered beads in pairs that are perfect for earrings. I love them! I have always liked her sugared beads and all that enamel. I think I may be seen an enameled key someplace and you know that I am in love with that!

Merry Christmas Andrew!

Enjoy the day!

Just hopped over to Sue's Etsy shop - I love all the beads but some enamelled pieces really caught my eye - ruffled bead caps, sprocket and also the very sweet keys!

Nally said...

What a wonderful stash of treasures!
Holdin my fingers crossed.

Nally said...

And I love Sue's enameled head pins - they're awesome!

Boot ~C said...

I was SO lucky to be a swap partner w/ sue this summer. I can attest that her beads are flawless & her enameling to die for, ( I have even taken her enamel pieces to my jewelry class as inspiration for us to tackle some enameling!)& some of her beach beads had my mom saying, "I want these". She always admires, but NEVER demands( in a nice way)my swap goodies!

Imaginative Jewelry said...

Love those beads!!!

Elizabeth said...

Those are amazingly lovely. Good Luck everyone and Merry Christmas.

KayzKreationz said...

Another great giveaway. I would love to own these, such inspiration running thru my head. Favorite Suebeads have to be, well, all of them, but the fossil focals and other fossils to accompany it, along with some of her bead caps would be a true investment in unique design.
Happy Holidays everyone!

I love Sue's beads that are in summery colors at the core but covered in clear glass. They're so summery and bright and lovely. Those and the bead caps with the fluted edges are my favorites.
