I am in love!!!!!

With this bead and quite probably Kelley of Kelley’s Bead Studio. Last week, I asked Kelley if she ever sold mixed lots of her orphans. Well as a matter of fact she does. I’ve got my monthly market starting up in a couple of weeks and an art festival in April. I really wanted a little mix of beads that I could pair with some of my porcelain beads and bronze and copper pieces to make pendants. I said to Kelley, I love surprises.


Well I am awe struck, gob smacked, speechless, and speechless doesn’t happen all that often. This mixed lot came in the mail on Saturday. I couldn’t keep my hands off them. I kept holding them up to the light so I could see through them. I rolled them around in my fingers. I was supposed to be doing other things. But I couldn’t stop. I am obsessed with these beads. They are so beautiful. They are perfect and glass is just too hard for me to capture the intricate patterns and layers in these beads.

So what you should really do is go over to Kelley’s Etsy shop and buy some of these beads. Just so you can get your own really good look at them up close and personal. Kelley’s got some great mixed lots of orphans over there right now. And some beautiful sets and focals. I just know there is something there that you can’t resist.

Thanks Kelley!!!!

Well now, I can see why you're in love!!! As the immortal Cosmo Kramer would say "OH MAMA!" (I can also do the Homer Simpson drool if that's more effective) Enjoy playing with those beads!!!

Stunning and so nice to roll around in your hands. I had just bought some of Kelley's lamp work nuggets and just love them. Can't wait to see what you make with these.

Awww, you're so sweet, LeAnn. I'm so glad you love your beads! I had so much fun pulling these beads together for you and hope to see pics of what you do with them :)

Three of my orphan sets sold tonight and will be on their way to TX tomorrow. Thanks for the nod to my shop!!

Tari, these beads are going to be so much fun. And I'd love to see your Homer Simpson drool :-)

Judy, I'm just waiting to see what you do with your special Kelley beads.

Kelley, these beads are so fantastic. I've had them out tonight rolling them around in my fingers again. My son is home overnight and even the macho guy picked them up and went oooooh aaaah. I'll be sure to let you all know what I do with them.

These are like candy, loving the randomness of it all.
