Photo above taken in Cairo Egypt on our trip we just returned from last week….I am up to my elbows in beads at home too
and need to start releasing some of these beadies back into the world and into YOUR talented hands, to design with for yourself
or get an early start on holiday gifts. I have enough to share and some new goodies to offer from Egypt and Turkey too!

We had such an incredible time on our trip and I am just beginning to sort though my images. Even if you are not a jewelry designer, consider purchasing a bead collection or two as stocking stuffers for your friends and family who are addicted to the bead “crack” like I am. I guarantee that a pretty wrapped parcel of beads will override most other gifts in the WOW department when you are dealing with a bead addict.
