Free Beads For Blogging!

What's better than beads? Free beads :-)

And am one of the lucky winners of Tanya's "Free Beads for Blogging" program.
Here's her website: Fusion Muse, and here's the store where these lovely beads are coming from...all the way from Thailand: Ploi Thai.

I was supposed to write this post earlier, but kept waiting to get better light outdoors. The sun is still playing hide-and-seek, but I decided it was not fair to not do this already. So hoping some edits will help the quality of my pics this time.

Here's what I got:
(Am going to have to ask Tanya for the exact descriptions and will update here once I find out.)

I believe the pink coins are dyed coral, the brown ones are man-made resin (they are gorgeous!) and the turquoise are "magnesite" (Sandra, I got this info from your post ;-))

Need to find out about the black cylinder beads. They are beautiful, they have a subtle  brown pattern in them that the camera has not been able to grab.

These cuties are mother-of-pearl. Love the colors, and I think I have some plans for them!

And lastly, the focal! I definitely have something in mind for this. Hope to work on it this week. Isn't it stunning! Love the color and its a good size...about 2 x 2.25 inches.

Thanks much, Tanya for these lovelies!


  1. Oooo I love that focal, too! And I just bought some glass 'faceted' beads like those black ones! lol

  2. I was picked too, wondering what I will get??? Can't wait to see what YOU make :-)

  3. The black tubes are Agate, hence the brown areas and the faceted black ones are glass I believe.I have had those a long long time. The focal came from a friend as I thought you could do it better justice than me. Hope that explains some.Love and Hugs Tanya

    1. Thanks for adding the details, Tanya :) I hope I am able to make them look prettier than they already are!

  4. Can't wait to see what you create with those yummy ingredients Kashmira!
