Week #24 - Sweet Simplicity

 A few weeks ago, I learned that a local bead shop was closing.  I'd never been to this bead shop, but figured it was high time I go.  Sadly, it was an INCREDIBLE shop!  One of the best I've seen in the midwest!  They had everything from Semi-Precious stones, to seed beads, to quality tools, to Swarovskis, books, magazines, czech beads - EVERY.THING. you can imagine - they carried. 

This may or may not be the entire stash of things I purchased - ;)

While I was shopping, I picked up some wire (ok - alot of wire) and some new tools - including a hammer, bench block, liver of sulfer (which I haven't used yet), some new pliers....all kinds of goodies.  My first project using these supplies - is this week's pair of earrings. 

Somewhere I came up the idear to wrap wire around seed bead viles - what a cool idea!  So, these earrings came from that experimenting.  They're made of copper and have Swarovski Crystal AB rondelle's on top.  Sweet. Simple. Beautiful.
