Natural Spring Greens

There was a fantastic turn out for last week's faux amber bead giveaway, and a wonderful variety of input from readers on the best natural beads. I have consulted, and we have a winner! Congratulations to Kindred Images, and thank you so much to everyone who entered!

For this giveaway, I asked for your favorite natural beads. The winning comment was a toss up between peridot and Job's Tears - beautiful natural seed beads that look very much at home with subtle greens. The combination is perfect for spring!

Next week I have a very special, totally new giveaway for you, with multiple winners and some fun treasure hunting! To help make the contest a bit more fun, I'll be getting a little help from one of my new favorite places - Pinterest. If you're not using this fun tool yet, you can request an invite and get started.*

Today is the last day of greens for the week, although I can't make any promises as we get closer to spring. Meanwhile, have a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day weekend!

*Warning - Pinterest may cause hours of fun.
