Beads in the Mail!!

Yay! It's a great day when beads come in the mail!

I received a package from Artbeads.com today which was filled with Swarovski crystals for a fall design!!!

I selected these crystals from the Swarovski Pendants category on the Artbeads.com site.

I don't want to give them all away on the first day of opening the package, but I received several different colors in this 7mm briolette.

This one is TOPAZ....perfect for a SPARKLY fall design! As usual when I select beads, I have a general design idea. Also as usual, when I receive them, I start thinking of other designs!!

Why is that?? I think I just like getting into a creative zone so much, I can't stick with the original plan!

I can't wait to show you the rest!! :)

Pretty color...shape reminds me of a christmas tree bulb. Like the big old lights that we used to have on our tree growing up. Very cool! Can't wait to see the other colors!
Love ya!

Beautiful bead! Topaz is my favourite colour for swarovski crystals - and I love that it's finally now in season, too.

I'm also similar with designs, sometimes I think I ought to start drawing up what pops into my head so I don't forget... but I very rarely stick to a planned design - always changes within moments :)

Have fun making, can't wait to see what you've done with the bead! xx
