Bead Hoarders' Blog Hop

Welcome to Lori McDaniel Anderson's Bead Hoarders Blog Hop. Here for you to see are a few of my favorite "pretties" that have been stashed away far too long...and finally strung together in a beach themed starfish necklace.
The necklace features an enameled starfish focal from Gardanne Beads purchased just one year ago. Also, a colorful and unusual glass lamp work tube bead from Redside Designs. The silver Hill Tribe fish bead has been a part of my collection since the beginning of time. - I've just been holding onto it for good luck.
Lots of freshwater pearls, sterling silver separator beads and handmade clasp make this a fun and unusual piece to wear. The detail in the enameling on that starfish is truly gorgeous.



Next be sure to click below and visit more "pretties" brought out for your review and enjoyment!
