Ok, ok, ok...I know I have been extremely lax in my posts to the blog, but it has been somewhat boring around here. School, school and more school has taken up all of my time again. I will be so glad when this term is over and summer will be here. Conversion to semesters will finally happen in the fall and hopefully I will have that all under control.
Anyway, on to the main point of tonight's blog post. As I posted on Facebook earlier in the week, I won Magpie Gemstones Blog Buddy Bead Giveaway. Szarka Carter is the proprietor of Magpie and also a wonderful jewelry artist. You can see her work at Szarka's Artisan Couture Jewelry. I have "virtually" known Szarka for awhile now because we belong to several online jewelry artisan groups. I purchase some of my supplies, in particular gemstone beads, from Magpie and the quality is wonderful. For my jewelry making friends, I highly recommend Magpie, and I am happy to do this promotion. For my friends who love jewelry, please go check out Szarka's page. There are tons of lovely things to see.
I hope I did justice to these wonderful beads. Thanks Magpie Gemstones for picking me!
