More Art Beads Summertime Fun!!!!

I received an email from Duchess at saying for the next couple months ArtBeads would like to "focus on summer themes, whether it’s fun outdoor activities, summer vacations, nature scenes or just the lovely season itself."

So for this months blogger challenge I have chosen items from their Charms, Pendants, and Glass Beads categories for my summertime fun!

Look at this haul!!!

Clockwise starting with the amethyst glass -
FP-AMYLT6 - Czech Fire Polished Bead - Light Amethyst - 6mm * $2.56/50 pk
CR-OV018 - 11x9mm Orange w/ Picasso Oval * .34/each
CR-SP064 - Czech Glass Yellow Tiger's Eye Large Spade * .84/each
CR-FL197 - Czech Glass Lily Flower White Luster * .40/each

Now in the middle
CR-RL066 - 9x6mm Opalescent Pink and Light Emerald Roundelle * .32/each
CR-RL099 - Opaque Green w/ Half Picasso Roundelle * .35/each

And the best for last
LMP-0168 - Purple, White and Orange Flowers with Purple Center Mix Bicone Beads (5 Pcs) * $23.47 (these are now out of stock, they are VERY popular!)

Lets get a closeup on these, shall we!

Look at the detail on those lamp work beads. They are beautiful. When I pulled them out of the package, I will admit, I slobbered on myself a bit. I LOVE them! The amethyst glass is amazing also. They have some heft to them, like crystal. Ya know how crystals have some weight to them, but glass and be very light? Mebbe it is the quality of the glass as well. These are lovely!

ArtBeads will be posting their blog partners designs on their “Summertime” Facebook Gallery post starting June 21st. Stop by their Facebook page to see them all!!
