My Artbeads package...

arrived today! I just love getting one of these purple packages!

These are the components I chose to celebrate "The Beauty of Spring." I like to mix things up and make a few different designs.

I've been experimenting with resin pieces lately, so when I saw Artbeads selection of Acrylic/Resin Components, I just had to get some flowers. Besides, what's Spring without flowers?! The top two are Matte Lavender Camelia Flowers and Matte Smoked Topaz Daisies. The other three sets are Matte Peach Daisies, Matte Amethyst Daisies, and Matte Lavender Dogwood flowers. The colors of all the flowers are so pretty and will look beautiful in my bracelet design.

The bright Matte Light-Yellow Resin Butterflies are a great Spring color! I wanted to include leaves & bugs, so I chose Czech Glass Fan Leaves in TourmalineAntique Silver Violet Leaf Charms, and Antique Silver Ladybug Charms. So cute and the details are amazing! I also wanted to add a few lilies, and I fell in love with the Turquoise and Pink/Amber colors of the lily beads from Artbeads Pressed Czech Glass Beads.

The Antique Silver Oval Chain has a really cool texture that is perfect for my bracelet! Below the chain are a couple of Sterling Silver Daisy Links that will go with the resin flowers above. In keeping with the "daisy/flower" theme of my bracelet design, I'll be using a gorgeous Sterling Silver Flower "S" Clasp. I'll be including some earrings too, so I chose two different styles of earwires. One pair of Sterling earwires is embellished with 3mm round Turquoise gems and the second pair of Sterling earwires is a Teardrop Lever Back style.

I can't wait to get started on my jewelry pieces using all these great items! I hope you will come back later in the week to see what I've created. Thanks for reading and taking a peek at my order from!
