Bead Faire



New Stuff
Last weekend was our local bead faire at the coast and visiting with friends and finding some great vintage stuff and stone cabs kept me pretty busy...however....
I did manage to get a bit further on the faux tortoiseshell piece and also make a bracelet with vintage czech nailheads...

hi, lb! nailheads are a special favorite of mine and I'm always looking for ones I don't have yet! ebay sometimes has them, but they can be pretty spendy there...still, when all else fails, eh!

VERY Deco, m'dear! Very funky! "Spendy" you say? A spendy beader? There's a shock!

Glad to see this posted. I was starting to worry your carpal tunnel ate you!

hi, lj! yep...the nailheads are from the 20's-30's, the very time art deco was around and popular! (not that it's not still popular!)

I know what you mean about nailheads. I like them, too. I do have one or 2 strands of them, but I could use some more:)
