Beading Daily’s February Blog Hop is all about glass beads.  Click here for more details.

I used the blog hop as a reason to hit up my local craft store.  Sure I have plenty of glass beads in my stash but I heard they were having a sale!  🙂


I really like the impact of the black and gray beads with the faceted drops.  This necklace turned out better than I expected.  I used the same beads along with seed beads for the earrings.


All of the beads in this necklace are faceted.   The large coin shaped beads, the drops and dark purple beads also have an AB coating.  This necklace really catches the light.

This was my first submission for a blog hop and I am looking forward to this month’s challenge.
