If you happen to have a copy of this month's Jewelry Affaire, I've got a pair of earrings in here.
These are earrings I made last year for the Bead Soup Blog Hop.
The beads are amethyst and moss agate.
It would be fun to see the inside of the Stampington offices. I wonder if they ever have shown it in their Where Woman Create magazine? That's one of their magazines that always has me wanting to see more of the workshops and homes they feature. Organization of supplies is always interesting ( impossible ? ) and with beadwork, it can be tedious trying to find the one tiny component you just had in your hand.

Recently, there was a discussion about bead storage in an online bead group I belong to. I've finally relented and given up on the many ( many ) small vintage boxes and tins I have been using and just got some unattractive plastic divided bins - and back to the hardware store for more ( three times so far ).
Trading cute for function and find-ability.
That's a word, right?
I'll let you know how this works out . . .
right after I find the beads I thought I put right here.....
where's my helper ?
