Tuesday Tidbits - Soft Flex Tweet-a-Lot Prize Revealed + New Necklace

Remember a few days ago when I mentioned how I'd won a Soft Flex Trio set in their Tweet-a-lot contest? The prize package arrived late last week - Soft Flex Extreme Trio. I want to use these for only the most special of designs and with my best beads. I've got some really gorgeous stones to work with and lots of Swarovski crystals...now I just need to figure out what I want to make with them!

Also on the tidbit front, I made a necklace that I never got around to posting about to share today. Using beautiful Czech glass luster coated faceted beads from The Beadin' Path, freshwater pearls and Swarovski bicones, I've made a necklace in the same style as the bracelets I've been creating with a variety of those same luster beads. I have no idea how I forgot to post about it before this.

I really should get more pieces up on my Art Fire and Etsy shops. I just find it difficult to work up the enthusiasm for a whole day of photography when all I have is the weekend to get everything done and there are so many things I want to do.

Drop in tomorrow for some Mid-Week Mutterings!

Congratulations on winning the SoftFlex Tweet-a-Lot contest. For some reason this does not surprise me! You are one very busy Twitterer!

By the way I love the necklace, such an elegant and lovely design. The colors are so beautiful. A very classy piece.

Warmest Wishes,

Thank you Duchess! You can be sure there will be some Artbeads Swarovski's in one of those Trio Extreme pieces - I have been simmering a piece featuring the beautiful blue briolettes I received in the last blogger package!
