Bead Sale!

This sale is a like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get!

So my mom was talking to a friend and said friend wanted to know where she got a certain bead since she had never seen it in my shop. Ah, those were beads found on the bead table. You see, I make many beads that never see the light of day. One-of-kinds, ones that were maybe just a bit off in color or size from my regular line or an experiment. They end up in a big ceramic dish on my bead table. So I've decided to package up a few grab bags of these unique beads. They aren't seconds or flawed in any way, I'm just too lazy and too busy to take photographs of all of them. They are really beautiful collections. There is a least 5 beads in each grab bag. I have 8 of them made. (Click on the link to go to the listing.)

I LOVE your idea of putting the beads in the box of chocolates and how nicely they all fit in each of the wrappers. That is too cool!

Patty said...

What a fun idea! I bet they're amazing.

thanks kelley, i love photoshop!

Anne said...

Since we can't actually eat those yummy beads, do we get the chocolates in our grab bag too?

Tabmade said...

What a fun idea. :D If I had the money to spare I'd totally get one of these grab bags. I hope you do this again someday when your dish becomes full again. :)

Oh yeah...they are so mine! I didn't necessarily have money to spare, but I am so glad that I got me one of these grab bags. Your beads are top notch and they add such a level of sophistication and intrigue to my desigsn. Actually, it is a bit selfish...when I got to your Etsy site I cannot chose what I like best! So now you will be doing that for me and I love a good surprise. Enjoy the day! Erin

Amazing beads! Pls, pls, how much is it? I'd love to get some. Great idea!
Unfortunately here in Portugal there isn't much choice. It's so frustrating!
