  11. Wow, it was really hard to pick one item and I almost shorted out my keyboard with my drooling. My favorite was Picasso Gemstone Donut Czech Mix Colors Glass Beads 10 Pieces - (X123). They are gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well, talk about a challenge. I've favorited nearly a dozen of the beads at the shop, but narrowed it down to four to comment on.

    I'm not sure why, or even what I'd do with them yet, but I love the 13mm pewter buttons.

    The matte emerald green SuperDuos (A003) look like sea glass in the pictures. So lovely.

    The opaque green czech drops (MD1026) are so natural and earthy looking. Perfect for autumn designs.

    Finally, the octagonal teal and bronze (MO1048) beads really caught my eye. I have similar beads in my stash, but not in this pretty teal color.

    Thanks for having this giveaway. Even if I don't win, I've discovered another source for some really interesting beads.

  32. Surprisingly, it seems that Round 4mm Opaque Czech Faceted Firepolish Rose-Gold Topaz Beads is my first favorite followed closely by Czech Red Gray Picasso Glass Round Faceted 4mm Beads . I'm normally more of a blues girl, but these are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That's not fair!!! I love them all, I'm partial to super duos but when I started looking, I could not find a favorite. I love all colors, and anything that sparkles (bling, bling, bling). I love the rose-gold topaz fire polished beads. I could go on and on, but I can't pick a favorite.

    ReplyDelete

  40. Oh my gosh!! How can you choose a favorite out of all those beautiful beads? I love all the Picasso ones, I love all the superduo's, the daggers, I must have changed my pick a half a dozen times, but finally decided on the one you have pictured, the Picasso Gemstone Donut. I just ordered several types of Picasso beads this week, but didn't know about this shop until now. :(

  52. How can you choose just one? If I have to I think I would vote for the Picasso gemstone donuts. They inspire me.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm usually a color hound and the Picasso finish mutes the colors. On the other hand, they would save me from clashing.... :-)

    They aren't beads, but I have to admit some of my favorite items are the embossed brass squares. So pretty!

    ReplyDelete
