Bead Hoarders Bloghop Reveal 2014

I decided to enter into Lori Anderson's bead hoarders blog hop because I wanted to use some of my beads that I have purchased over the years. I do not purchase that many beads now, but I do have a large number of beads that span the last 10 years.

I wanted to use some flower lampwork beads, enamel headpins, and a leaf bead from green girl.




I really like the red and green lampwork flowers from mermaid beads and decided to use the enamel headpins from GetYourbeadOn to make Christmas earrings. I added a couple of poinsettia clay beads that I had made a few years ago. I really like the way that they came out. I ran out of time to use the other beads for this hop.


I want to thank Lori for hosting the blog hop and I can not wait to see what everyone else made.
Please go here to see what all the bead hoarders have made.
