Crazy Agate - PURPLE - OMG for real

Seriously, if I had to live on beads alone, I'd be totally set for life with the shipment I just received from Artbeads!  First I have to thank Regina for referring me to Artbeads.com before Christmas.  With an abundant amount of suppliers out there, choosing where to shop is a dilemma... or not. :)  But through Artbeads website, Regina so kindly offered me a holiday gift just to try them out.

I can honestly say... Sweeeeettttttt!  Artbeads you're lucky I don't live next door, or I'd be over there kissing you right now.  In this shipment I found a new FAVORITE bead... Crazy Purple Agate.  The picture on the website looked cool... but in person - holy.jeepers.batman.they.are.Awesome!  All hues of purple are laces with some brown veining.  They are going to be a STUNNING piece of bead embroidery (so much for paperwork this afternoon!) :o)
P.S. Those Czech FP beads are the winter lilac mix



I also tried a few cabs that intrigued me.  They are glass opals (in amethyst, blue and topaz).  I was really impressed with their fire... I never expected it in faux form.  The amethyst opal is in the middle of the ring of love... aka the purple crazy agate beads.  But love... yes, I'm in love!  So, I'm going to leave y'all now for a moment alone with my beads.... here's some tapas for you to enjoy!

{Hugs!}

P.S. the Crazy Agates are on sale today... so you can get your own! :)

Scrumptious! Artbeads was one of the first places I ever shopped and I always find something to love there. What I like best is that I can order just the amount that I want of most items rather than buying bulk. Reminds me that I have a gift certificate to use there this week and they are having a bit 35% off sale today and tomorrow! Enjoy the day! Erin
