Peace, Love & Bead Bloggers!

Yay, it's time to take a peek into the crafty world of some other bead bloggers to see what they have been up to over the last week. I think Sunday is the perfect time to catch up. Weekend activities are coming to a close, but the work week hasn't yet begun. If only we could stop time for a little while longer!

As I mentioned yesterday, I received a new package from Rings & Things. I'm anxious to show you everything, but of course, it makes it more fun to post them one bead at a time! :) It is a great way to appreciate the special qualities each of them possess.

Today's bead is a 6mm swarovski round in crystal/golden shadow. NICE!!! There's just something very smooth about this color. It has just a trace of gold and is as sparkly as all good little swarovski crystals should be! I was using a book lite on my lap as the day light was waning and, WOW, the sparkle was gorgeous!!

So, here is wishing you all a great week! I hope you still have a few minutes to run through the blogs below for a little extra inspiration! Take care!

I know what you mean when you say "smooth" about a color...almost gives you the feeling of silk!

Cheers
