Over the past few months I have been collecting a lot of Julianna Cannon’s (aka Julsbeads) gorgeous beads. You know the kind of beads you buy that sit for a while on your workbench because you know that the piece you use them in needs to be extra-special to do them justice?
That’s the kind of beads Juls creates.
So…I’ve had these beads for a while, and have finally used them in a few designs that I wanted to share with you. This bangle/earring set features a gorgeous tangerine heart with companion beads that I’ve shared with you before:
I liked the tangerine set so much that I bought a second heart set in a deep red that I used in another bangle/earring set:
A couple of weeks ago, my Bead Table Wednesday post featured a stunning red/orange/cream/silver bead set that I have turned into this necklace/earring/bracelet set:
And finally, I pulled out my new Crafted Findings riveting tool from FDJ tools to rivet a cool chain featuring a Julsbeads focal:
If you are as obsessed with these beads as I am (and why wouldn’t you be – they are gorgeous!), hop on over to Juls’ Etsy shop to pick some up. And while you are hopping, you must check out her funny, inspiring blog!
** All of these pieces will be listed in my Etsy shop soon – happy shopping!
