Bead Table Wednesday

It's shocking I know, but I'm going to share some of my Copper Work in Progress, I've always got copper going at some stage so it only makes sense to share it. But don't miss my newest stone beads at the end.

 As usual re-stocking the shop, some special and pre-orders and a few new. This time I have some larger Sea Urchins in somewhat of a free form shape and a Large Ammonite piece that I envision as a bracelet but it could easily be a pendant with a place to put a fun dangle. I have lots and lots of cleaning and filing to do to it all but I'm shooting for a possible Thursday night firing.

I love taking pictures of beads, so much fun!

From the center there is Natural Golden Coral Rounds, then Barrel shape Mexican Turquoise, a strand of yummy Red Bamboo Coral, Howlite Heishi and last but not least beautiful Green Yellow Howlite.
 These beads were purchased from ExcellentGem, very happy with what I received and they were nice and cooperative sellers. I added the Green Yellow Howlite in at the last moment before shipping.
