Happy Sparkly New Year!


Happy New Year! I wish you all the most fabulous and sparkly year ever!!

My New Year's necklace was finished just in time! Yay!!

I LOVE when things come together in an unplanned and perfect way. A great reminder that everything always works out. Especially when it comes to beads!


Back in an October post, It's okay to go crazy with sparkle, I mentioned I came across these SPARKLY pave connectors on the Primabead.com site.

I had been dreaming about how to use them in a New Year's necklace ever since. It turned out I was able to get them sent to me from the Cousin Corporation as one of their Ambassadors. Their sister company, PrimaBead.com is their retail site.

I also requested the silver plated open oval teardrops from the Cousin.com catalog.

Just after ordering these pieces, Cousin surprised all the Ambassadors by sending us each a giant box of Swarovski swag!!

It just so happened the box contained a bunch of these tiny little top drilled briolettes that fit perfectly in the open teardrop forms.

Ahh, what a great way to begin 2015!
