So, I'm on a mission to use up my stash....... then I can buy more! At the moment the first stage of my mission is to use up as much of my bead stash as I can. I've been raiding my gemstone box and have made several items using up gemstones.
Carnelian and Pearl Choker and Earrings:
Lapis Lazuli, white glass and red seed bead Necklace and earrings:
I'm really pleased with how they all turned out, particulary the bracelet using rose quartz, lapis lazuli and turquoise. I'm also pleased with how I managed to create so many items from my bead stash and not another new purchase in sight! I almost think I deserve to make a new craft purchase, but that would slightly defeat the object of my mission! Rest assured, though, I will be making some new craft purchases, but only when I have made a little more room.
