Collections: Seed Beads and Crystal

Earlier this month, I asked readers to name which beads they would most like to have by the wheel-barrowful, and the results were almost unanimous. It seems that when it comes to quantity, seed beads and crystals are number one. Considering how many wonderful things you can make with huge lots of them, this makes a certain amount of sense. And wouldn’t it be wonderful to dip your hand into a big barrel of marvelous, tiny beads?

I’ve drawn one comment at random, and the winner is Allie, who will soon receive a big package of golden hued seed beads and bugle beads. I hope they can bring lots of new inspiration!

Allie’s bead choice was seed beads, with crystal bicones making a close second. To celebrate another successful giveaway, I’ve put together a fun collection of designs that use seed beads and crystals, with a few fire polish creations, too.
