Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

Big thanks to Lori and this wonderful Bead Hoarders Blog Hop.  I now know for sure that I am a Hoarder/Collector/Lover of Beautiful Beads even more than I realized!  I'm a little afraid of my self.  Some of these beads, to follow,  I have had since I first started designing in 2007.  When will I ever find the time to use them?  I always want more...more is better...right!

  1. I love the bracelet!!

  2. Oh my, that is a cutie, Pam! Hope you get some time to hang with your beads...

  3. I am a lover of lampwork beads as well, buying, NOT MAKING, and have to say that owl bead is the most fantastic one I have ever seen. Your bracelet is devine, but don't wear it around me, or it might get "lost".

  4. Marlene...thank you! I know I'm a buyer as me that is just fine...let those talented designer help us out with beautiful beads!

  5. Those are beautiful lampwork beads, and I love your owl. The photographs of it are delightful. It really just stands out in the picture! It was fun looking at what you made and what you saved in your collection!

    1. Thanks Sharyl...thanks for stopping by. Glad you liked my cute owl!

  6. The beads are gorgeous and I especially love the second necklace, great designs. Though that little owl is a real charmer.

  7. Gorgeous! I'm not surprised that you have such a wonderful hoarded stash! I love how in that first bracelet that yellow bead mimics an owls eye to join the owl charm :-)

    1. Hi Cassie...thanks for checking out my post and for noticing the yellow bead...I thought so too. Good eye(s)!

  8. That Owl is soooo cute!! Love the ones still hanging out in your hoard too! Easy to see why you've held on to them :)

  9. LOL! See only a true collector can remember when and where you bought them! I can only aspire to your greatness! Love your collection


    Anzia aka Zia Parks

  10. That owl is amazing! Loved seeing all of your stash goodness. The lampwork beads are also beautiful. Christie

  11. I love both pieces and especially the necklace. Great beads and great designs.

  12. I want to run away with your stash. Seriously! Your bead collection is drool-worthy. I have a soft spot for lampwork glass myself and I think you did a fabulous job on the bracelet and necklace. Both are gorgeous!

  13. Beautiful bracelet.
    Lovely stash.


  14. Loved seeing your stash and the finished pieces. Thanks for the inspiration.

  15. Love the finished pieces. And the stash *sigh*. Oh-my-gosh, the STASH...

  16. That little ceramic owl is precious. Do you remember where you brought it ? I love these pieces !

    1. Thanks Audrey. Which owl are you referring too? I can tell where I got it when I know which one. I do buy pretty much everything on Etsy.

  17. I love the owl and the rabbits. Your finished pieces are sweet!

  18. Stunning beads collection and stunning creations ^_^

  19. Love your pieces, beautiful beads and great designs! Those owls are so adorable.

  20. Pam both of your necklaces are great. I love the color of the second one. It is my favorite.

  21. Um, pardon me while I drool ALL OVER your bead hoard!! ;)
    No kidding, you've got some serious pirate booty. . .if pirates were jewelry artists.
    Anyway, your designs are absolutely gorgeous. I love your use of your hoard in each of them. I especially like that mostly blue necklace. It's yummy. Well done!

  22. I just love the colors of those lampwork beads, lovely necklace. What a stash!

  23. Gorgeous designs! The adorable owl bracelet is my favorite...I think!
