Crystal ball charms and new beads

This is a post about a few things I wanted to share today !!

I was shopping at Hobby Lobby and found some cute crystal ball charms, they were nice, but not the prettiest bead and I knew I could make something even better, so I did today !!

I had a blast and decided I am going to make more charms to sell and it is a fun thing to do !!

Here are my new charms, and I listed a bunch of them on Etsy today !

I will have to retake the photos, my camera did not do a good job, the lighting was at fault, and I am a bit frustrated !! Good pictures are key, so I will have to try again !!!


You never saw a cobalt blue crystal ball ? Just had to make one, the beads were too pretty !! I used a vintage spacer with clear pretty rhinestones between the bead the bead cap I used upside down to make a stand for the crystal ball  !! Used a vintage jump ring too. From the 1970’s !!!





YOu get the picture, they are cute and fun and each a bit differant !! I l oved making them and  had so much fun !!

Then I got a new package in the mail from one of my favorate online bead stores,,

here is what I got !!!

Some pretty seed beads in shades of white and off white, but one is lustered wild berry, who can resist that name !!



then some beautiful crystal beads , again, one is rhubard and blueberry pie , yum, and one is vintage yellow , so pretty , both 8mm !! Wish I could find bigger yellows, but for some reason, they are so far, impossible to find in large sizes in glass !!



So pretty !!! Lots of nice seed beads for some up coming projects and I always find a reason for beads, just because is a good one !! seed beads too, I have so many, but I love them. I am grateful I love to collect such small and inexpensive things, they are fun, pretty and I can make wonderful things !!

So, that is what is up here, what is up with you !!!


I would love to hear what you think !!!
