I'm so fortunate to meet so many bead artists over the net from all over the world, and get the opportunity to own their amazing beads. I have met so many fabulous creative people, not just bead related, in bloglandia and the internet since beading took hold of my life. The life of a bead addict is a good one.

This pair is a simple combination of green concave (or convex depending which way you look at it) ceramic discs by Chinook paired with Mary Ann Caroll's ceramic beads. So simple -  I'm quietly chuffed with the results.

New earrings made with some gorgeous hoops from Outwest that go (oh so nicely) with some raku teal lamp work beads by Blue Seraphim. Look at that pattern on those hoops - I'm in love with these babies!. There's one pair in the Etsy shop and one in the Madeit shop.


  1. I love the pairing you did here!
    That greenish blue with dark red is still one of my favorite color combos ever.

  2. These are beautiful and your photos are gorgeous!!! You do such a great job with photographing your jewelry.

  3. Thanks Erin and Shannon. I do love a bit of complementary colour contrast.
    Thanks for the comment on the photos Erin - it's hard work for me, a steep learning curve and I'm at the mercy (as we all are) of the daylight and how well a piece photographs. Some times it comes together, sometimes it sure doesn't ! Vicki :)
