The wonderful Lori Anderson is hosting yet another wonderful blog hop: the 2nd Annual Bead Hoarder Blog Hop.
Of course I enthusiastically signed up for this, loving blog hops.
Little did I know life got in the way as both my parents had to be admitted to hospital in November. I’m grateful my mum has recovered completely but my dad’s health situation is still very worrisome. But he is at home now and stable for the time being.
So I completely forgot about the blog hop. Luckily Lori posted a reminder but somehow I messed that up in my brain as well, thinking December 6 was on a Sunday, completely overlooking the word Saturday. So in my mind I thought I had today to create something for the blog. Not.
I’m so sorry you will have to do with some designs I made in October.
In October I had already set myself the goal to stop hoarding and start using those gorgeous beads. Which to be honest, is just an excuse, creating space to storage all the new goodies I bought.
I dived in my not so tiny collection of ceramic beads from Bo Hulley beads, hoarded for quite some time and created these three bracelets, using her ceramic beads and bracelet bars, combined with Czech glass and leather.
My last bracelet is made with a gorgeous handmade bead made by Dayna Schutter combined with Czech firepolished glass from SmittenBeads and Czech glass buttons I picked up from the Bead Fest fair in Hamburg last August.
All these designs are available in my etsy shop, except for the green/brown one, which has been sold already. Just click on the picture if you are interested.
Thank you so much Lori for hosting this wonderful blog hop. I hope you are enjoying your Zentangle class together with Zack today.
