Hi there Jelveh! My most favorite bead of all is your focal bead #SP 987! It is gorgeous and so colorful with greens, turquoise, black, tan & red. I like focal beads, because others pay more attention to the details in the bead. I like just about any shapes. I also love your set #SP 979.
Have a fantabulous week! :o)

Hi Jelveh:
I am willing to bet that you already know what I am going to say for my favorite shape and number of beads; am I right?
I love to design with five chunky rounds!
Great pictures and great sets. Unfortunately, I wasn't home when you put them up. I love the Shades of Fall sets! Too bad they were already sold by the time I got home!

hey ginny girl, I know you well as you say, I even made sure the 3 sets of the Shades of fall had 5 beads each that were chunky...I think only one of them sold, there is still 2 sets in these colors left...
I will work on that other one we talked about this Friday...

Peace

Your photos are wonderful. Looks like you had a fantastic time. Love to see all the smiles. :o)

Thank you for another great contest for your gorgeous beads. Thank you! The coloring is FAB!

Personally.. I really enjoy the different shaped beads like "In My World The Sea". I would describe it as the "amoeba" designs. Colors.. love lime and turquoise.
