  6. Thank you for another giveaway. I'm tossed up between the Dust green and brown 2 hole piggy beads they look like Picasso style beads and the black with gold haze pip beads they are kind of ancient looking. They'd looked great as dangles on one of your Egyptian netted collars. Email me at Beadingfun4U@gmail.com or pjclouse1@gmail.com

  8. I loved the huge variety in the Best beads shop. The beads had so many different colors and textures that I feel like hoarding all of them. My favorites remain the dagger beads and the super duos. My imagination always runs wild when I think of them together. Butterflies, dragonflies and flowers, everything beautiful. It's so wonderful of The best beads shop to have this giveaway and I would love to win it.

  15. oooh I love this shop!!! I have been eyeing all the lovely beads in there, and I just found something new! My favorite is the Copper Faceted Tyre Rondelles Fire Polished Beads. They have large holes so they can take many thread passes or can be used in a nice macrame piece! I have to say I love those peacock beads too. My wishlist is growing. :)

  17. Right now I'm drooling over all the gorgeous purple and plum SuperDuos available. So yummy! I'm also quite fond of the Black with Dark Purple Haze PIP Beads as I haven't got any pips yet. And the Aventurine beads with gold and violet patterns respectively aren't my usual style, but very interesting.

  38. As a young girl, I was always told "Red heads should never be seen in pink" and I do believe this is why pink is now my FAVORITE COLOR as an adult. Shades such as Lustered Lilac, Lustered Pale Pink, Neon Pink Duets are just a few of the beautiful shades of pink as offered by "Best Beads".
