A Blog about life... jewellrey...and beads...


I've joined this wonderful Bead Hoarders Blog Hop!
Super idea by the sweet Lori Anderson of Pretty Things!

Today Saturday 167 Jewellery Designers dug into their Hoarded Jewellery Supplies and stashes and will be showing what they have done with them!
There are some beads though that I will never sell. When you get such precious beads as those and sell them, sometimes another reproduced one will not have the same colourings as the one that you regretfully sold. This I have learned for myself. Some colour patterns just hit me a certain way and I will never give them away or sell them!
 Stashes? I've got a bucket load of lovelies..
Just to show a few here..
Here is my Hoarded Stash!
This is a small fraction of my dragons horde!

Jubilee houses
Gaea focals

Tesori Trovati a gorgeousness of polymerclay!

Ok here is what I created!

Who knew? Pigs can fly?!
Well this little Miss Pig can~of course!
She is adorned with some Swarovski crystals, the whole necklace is wire wrapped in brass with coral beads. The clasp is sterling silver. This focal is by Green Girl Studios. 

Here I added a Ribbon! I think it was needed..

I made this cuff bracelet with Birgittas Darling little hedgie!
He is incorporated into heavy brass wire with Gaeas stiped bead he has for his tail. Next to that is my Own hand torched Lampwork bead~rust and brown. The cream colour disk was also torched by me. Petras heart is by my hand forged clasp at the end.

Ok I've made a Charm necklace with Gaeas
wonderful charms. Iv'e used a great bicycle chain and a Green Girl Studio clasp at the end. The house bead is from Jubilee and the Diary was created by the lovely Mary Harding. I used a button on my own torched light pink Lampwork.

Great pieces you made with these treasures!

Beautiful!!!! And your stash - soooooo much lovely!!! I have no idea how you could choose!! ;) I love the flying piggie - perfect! And the hedgehog is one of my favorite ever characters/animals, so I definitely love that too... I can't choose a favorite!


I loved the flying pig necklace, and was going to favorite it, until I scrolled down your post. That hedgehog is sooooo perfect.


Great designs and oh my what a stash!


Your pieces are all lovely. The charm bracelet is my favorite.


Is it possible to have hoard envy? Love the flying pig necklace but the little heggie is so adorable. Hard to pick a favorite.


I love the hedgie.. OMG when you said pigs can fly, I keep thinking of that one commercial, where the airline lady tells the pig to power down his word game.. LOL okay any how.. lol I love your pieces hun..


Love all 3 designs! I love the coral beads in the first piece, the woodsy feel of the hedgie bracelet, & the fun charming bracelet!


Pigs can fly ! how adorable !


How lovely! I really like all of your designs.

And your hoard (er, I mean, stash *grin*) is so cool! Thank you so much for sharing!

Movie premises can run the gamut from the clever, "don't let the bus fall below 50 mph or a bomb will explode," to the wacky, "don't feed the cuddly Gremlins after midnight or they turn into vicious little murder beasts," to the downright "ok, who the hell greenlit this mess," snakes on a plane anyone? But no matter how original the idea, the movie it carries lives or dies by its execution and it is here that A Quiet Place shows its pedigree. watch happy death day online As set-ups go, it comes with an intriguing one: don't make any noise louder than a whisper or risk instant, violent death by mysterious monsters that hunt by sound.

The premise is illustrated to chilling effect in an opening scene where an act of kindness has devastating results for the wondering family of protagonists. the devil's candy movie The narrative device presents a particular difficulty for the filmmakers. Namely, how do you tell a story with almost no dialogue between characters? An original idea is a Hollywood rarity in itself and the film handles the contrivance with expertise, showing us the daily routine of a normal, loving, American family in a world where dropping a glass can mean swift, brutal death.

There has been a recent trend of rookie directors coming out of left field with impressive, refreshing work, (Who the heck expected Jordan Peal to come up with a horror masterpiece like Get Out?) and to that illustrious list we can add . . . John Krasinsi. Wait. Who? With just a fairly unknown movie and about 3 episodes of The Office to his credit, it is a testament to his skill that on barely his second feature film he directed something as arresting as this. watch Avengers Infinity War online free hd


Amazing post with lots of informative and useful and amazing content. Well written and done!! Thanks for sharing keep posting.
