Yellow Swirly Goodness!

Today's sweet and fun swirly bead was temporarily strung along with yesterday's adorable glass flower bead. In response to a question on yesterday's post, these beads came from Walmart. The package indicates this is a product by the Cousin Corporation of America. There are 6 flower beads and 6 swirly beads on the strand.

I am looking forward to making these beads into a necklace because I think the yellowy fun along with the summery flower will result in a very cool, laid back necklace.

I'm pretty sure there will also be crystals and possibly even 1 or 2 interesting or unique odd beads just for fun. I have discovered if I'm not having fun, there's no point in doing it!!

We've still got a couple of good summer months left, so it's time to create some mid-summer jewelry.

I also wanted to mention there is a winner for last Wednesday's bead giveaway post!! Yay! I am thrilled to send beads to "Liquidblackout" from Canada!! Once I get her bundle of beads shipped out, I'll post the final package of treats here too just for fun! Thanks to everyone who stopped by and "played"!!

I hope your week has gotten off to a good start!!

Yay! You definitely started my week with a surprise!

I was so disappointed last night when I posted my comment and thought I missed the deadline because my clock is just a few minutes slow.

Thank you so much for this opportunity, gift and excitement :)

Let me know when you're ready and I'll give you my address.

It reminds me of a lollipop! Yellow is not a popular color but I've been told by a 12 year old, it's hot this season!

I agree with Pearl, it does look like a lollipop...but I have faith you will make a wonderful creation with this piece!!!

I've never found yellow to be requested much but this season a gentler yellow, like citrine, or opal has been requested quit often... :0)
Cheers

Woot! I'm not a big yellow fan but I can see how well this would go with the daisy!

and... WALMART?! *GASP!* My local Walmart has been burning out their ENTIRE bead section for new stock. I hope, I hope, I hope they bring in that gorgeous daisy with the new stock. Hooray for the HUNT!

Thanks for this!

That bead is just so cheery and bright. It makes me happy just to look at it.

I love your thinking and planning out loud - I can see it being built in my head as you speak.

I can't wait to see it

These are the beads I used in "Daisy Bell". I just couldn't resist them either. Can't wait to see what you do with them!
