As previously blogged about...I went to a little bead/thrift shop in Angel Fire and picked up a little bag of beads. Here is a quick snapshot of all the beads I was able to stuff into my little 2-inch bag.
May or may not seem like a lot to you, but I kind of think its a lot considering I picked 'em all out by hand. On the right of the photo above, you will see the green collage earrings I started with some of the beads.
So over a cup of joe on Saturday morning, I created the green collage earrings and think they turned out super cute. In fact, a friend wanted to buy them off me immediately! I gladly sold them :)
I was also so proud of myself for learining how to use the "macro" setting w/ LED light on my camera that I practiced on my husband's teeth.
Lastly, I remade a pair of Santa Fe Brewing cap earrings with some large red beads since an older pair broke on me. Now they really stand out!
