Nice Goodies from Ornamentea

With the crazy week and all, this is the first chance I've had to sit down and do some photography to show a goodie box I got from Ornamentea. It was sent to me as one of the editors on the Art Bead Scene blog, and it's a treasure trove!

They are located in Raleigh, North Carolina. And they have classes, too. If you're nearby you could check them out, for fun. There's a pretty blog, too, I love the ephemera and the antique typeface. My kind of thing for sure.

Luscious chain - such gorgeous texture! And round, square and ovals, what more could I need? I will NOT hoard this, I will use it. So others can see how lovely this chain is. And a fun brass box to put a collage inside, hmmm. Looks intriguing.

And some interesting clasps, a seven loop closure in antique brass color. And a snake for a hook. I'm thinking Cleopatra or a beautiful seven strand of pearls - I love lots of pearls!

Pearls and crystals, with something fauxtique as the focal. I've got to give these a lot of thought and put them to use right away!

Thanks, Ornamentea! Wish I was closer - but then, you're as close as a mouse click aren't you?

What fun! I have a problem with hording as well..... or rather that I can't decide on a design that is worthy of all the amazing beady goodness that I have! Thanks for sharing...I will go check them out right now! Enjoy the day! Erin

Hoarding, definitely a problem. lol. I just love it when I get a box from suppliers. It's like Christmas.
