New Treasures and Giveaway Update

About this design:

Some of my Bead Fest Santa Fe treasures. This awesome store had beautiful strands, but I was a little sad b/c they were kind of expensive... until I noticed the bargain bin... some strands had broken beads, some were simply tangled. $3/each or... if you got over 50 strands, $2 each! Guess what I did?
Also, I've had a couple of guesses getting warmer, but no one's gotten it yet! So, I'm going to give you another couple of hints. I didn't think it was going to be this much of a challenge, but live and learn, huh? So, if you'd like to rethink your guess and take another stab, go to:


ruby in zoisite, Moonstone, Rose Quartz, White Agate, mother of pearl hearts, amazonite

    Thank you, it was SO much fun to wander around with my best friend-niece and not worry about whether the kids were grabbing beads, or needed a nap, or were starving to death because Mama was too engrossed in beads to notice (Thank you honey!). We only had one day, and our feet wore out before we make it to the 2nd building of vendors, but I wasn’t too disappointed, I was out of money! :D
