Pay It Forward, I was a winner!

I honestly believe that the reason I started to read Cindy Wimmer's blog was because I had heard about her first blog give away. If you are not familiar with Cindy, she is an amazing jewelry designer. Her blog name is: Sweet Bead Studio, and it's filled with tidbits about her life, her jewelry designs, and friends. Cindy sells her jewelry on Etsy. Be sure to visit her store! I think you'll agree with me, that he jewelry designs are awesome!

Anyway, I digress. I entered Cindy's Pay it forward give away, and I won! It was a true day brightener on a some what blah day.

Also included in this day brightener, was a lovely journal! Isn't it beautiful?

Thank you so much, Cindy! You really made my day!

Now, I have a question for my readers. I know what I'm going to do with the journal, but I don't know what I'm going to do with the beads. When I look at the silver and the beautiful beads, I see a necklace. Now, I'll be the first to admit that I am not a jewelry designer, so I am asking you, what do you see when you look at the beads? Help me make a decision, please.

Congrats, you were always a winner even before this! I have an idea for the beads (unless, of course, you're going to send them here). Didn't think so. Make a bunch of chalcedony beads in different sizes and some silvered ivory shard beads. This necklace is going to look great on YOU.

Sharon, You're right, I'm keeping them! I think the idea of chalcedony beads and sis'd beads is a great idea. Now, I have to make more beads!

Congrats on winning! I would use the silver and gems for a necklace. I would use the crystal beads for earrings with your beads!

Thank you for the sweet comments! :-) You are so kind. Maybe you could divide up the beads in to different projects...maybe the stone beads for the Fall, and the silver to add to something using your beautiful lampwork!!
