happiness is a bead stash!

did you know that LA has a jewelry district?  it’s downtown, near the fashion district.  craft addicts unite!  there’s fabric, trim, buttons, beads, diamonds…holy cow.  a girl could really get in debt!

i tried to restrain myself, hitting only the bead stores.  i found some amazing fire-polished czech glass beads in the bead district near maple & 8th, and the most gorgeous semi-precious stones at bella findings.  i picked up these amazing rough cut briolettes in carnelian, moonstone, smoky topaz, and labradorite.  oh labradorite, the dark greyish beauty with a reflective teal green flash in the light.  gorgeous!  and i found some pale green prehnite (green amethyst) that i can’t wait to use.

on a less glamorous note, i also stocked up on chain and this cool pre-flux stuff that helps prevent firescale.  oh and the most beautiful jewelry benches at a to z jewelry tools.  some had built in bench blocks.  sigh.  a girl can dream, right?!

i’ve got plans for all this fun stuff…coming soon to my etsy store!
