Well I haven't been able to resist buying beads, so here's some eye candy for the jewellery / bead/ aholic's out there =)
I try to always have a wide colour selection of beads to work with, which is easier to do with the glass beads compared to the semi precious stone's, as in having a selection in a certain cut/ style/ size of bead in the same price range, which is not always possible with gemstones as the price can vary a lot more and some stones are more delicate then others or not found often in larger sizes.
I'll admit that when I bought these beads I was thinking of WoW (World of Warcraft) which is a game where you collect all types of materials to make things as well as fighting dragons, the smaller beads look to me as if they were made of little pieces of molten lava=)
I love this colour, it's gorgeous!
These beads make me think of blended ice coffee =)
