Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

We've all done it; spent out on some gorgeous artisan lovelies and for some inexplicable reason we have stashed these lovelies away and cruelly neglect to show them off in a new creation. But now is the time for them to shine and with thanks to Lori Anderson they will at last be proudly displayed.

So here are my 2 hoarded lovelies

A stunning pendant from Staci Lewis which I can't believe I've had for nearly 2 years! A ceramic disc and wool from raggedrobyn and a selection of scorchedearthonetsy lovelies that I can't believe I've not used.

The second hoard 

A beautiful ceramic pendant from Brigitta of
vintage beads, matt etched glass and buttons and lace. What on earth was up with me not using these gorgeous pendants.
So here's the reveal

I made chunky hammered hoops of different sizes and used this strong but so soft wool and a key to form the clasp.

I've twisted the lace with silk and wrapped with white wire. A czech glass button is the clasp and I used a rhinestone rondell and beads to form a bale.

Lastly are these earring using scorchedearthonetsy lillies

I hope you'll all forgive me for neglecting these lovelies and please have a look at these other naughty ladies who have been hoarding too!
