Artbeads Summertime Blogging Fun!

I was so excited to be able to pick from Artbeads vast selection of Glass beads, charms and pendants for their Artbeads Design Partner program! I kept the theme "Summertime" in mind for my choices and below are pictures of what I chose. I wanted a focal pendant and had the hardest time narrowing down my choice to only one! My choice was this gorgeous 24X32 Porcelain Shell Pendant. I love the blue-green tones, it is completely smooth and the shine of this pendant is so pretty. I think it is flawless! My next choices were 4 Sterling silver charms in the sea theme. I chose an embossed sand dollar and seashell, the cutest sea turtle charm and a conch shell charm. The detail of each charm is incredible! I am very happy with them. Next I chose 3 different colors of Swarovski 8mm round beads in Turquoise, Mocha and Crystal Golden Shadow. The Mocha color is a deep rich brown and is complimented beautifully by the turquoise and a new color for me, Crystal Golden Shadow. I dont think you can go wrong with Swarovski in general, but these beads are especially lovely with all their sparkling facets and striking colors. I then chose something different for me, Asymmetrical Glass Pearls in a softPowder Almond color. I am usually a very symmetrical person, but these lovely glass pearls spoke to me! I cant wait to use them. You will have to wait and see my creation next week! I hope you check back then.
