Okay, I have to admit that I completely forgot to post pictures of the rest of the beads I bought on vacation. While we were there, we drove over to Wilmington, NC and visited Caravan Beads. Well, I visited Caravan Beads. Trav and the girls waited outside on a bench. Pretty patiently, I might add. Anyway, here are my finds.
I adore these beads, handmade by local artisans. The larger pendant has an ocean feel to it, and a matte finish that I love. I've had a pendant similar to the leaf one above before. I think this one may wind up dangling off a fall themed bracelet.
I bought several of the flower beads because I found that I love working with them.
I love the browns and blues of these little beads. I bought two strands, and I'm sure I'll fit them into my fall designs, and no doubt wish I had bought more.
Finally, I couldn't leave without a couple of fall seed bead mixes and some more tila beads. I've never used the tilas, but I'm determined to work them into a fall design or two.
Tomorrow promises to be a hectic day with it being the first day of school and Hannah's first volleyball game of the season. Fall is in the air here, and I'm loving it!
