I heart Mondays

I've been sorting through my bead stash for a few reasons. First, it never hurts to take a look at what you've got, because depending on your mood, you'll see things in a different way. Second, the Bead & Button show is only a few months away, and I realize I haven't used much of what I bought last year yet! Third, it's easy to forget about things, like these charms, when they're tucked away safely. I'm a firm believer in letting your mind wander with an idea for a while until inspiration strikes -- but that's hard to do when you can't remember what you've got to work with. I clearly have a "thing" for heart charms. The hollow heart could be a bead frame. It's from Hip Chick Beads. The hands are from Art Girlz. The rest of the charms are from Wynwoods Gallery & Bead Studio.
What will I do with them? Each of these is cute enough to be on its own on a simple cord or tiny beaded strand. There's always the charm bracelet option. Hmmm... as I write this I'm reminded of a necklace I saw in Oprah by Tory Burch. Maybe these charms should stay together, after all.


  1. OH wow! Just found your blog from Heather Power's blog.
    Love those charms! And Love the idea of a many charmed necklace!! I'll be following up to see if you do indeed create that masterpiece!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Lorelei! And thanks for the motivation -- I better get beading!

  3. I'm curious too Karin. What's the status?
