"Hello, my name is Stacy and I am a Beadaholic" . . .
I'll be the first to admit that I have a bead buying obsession/compulsion, whatever you want to call it. I can't help myself.
You might be surprised to know that I rarely make jewelry for myself ~ I guess I am just too busy trying to make jewelry for others! Recently I purchased the items you see pictured below with the thought in mind to make some cute pieces for myself, for once.These wonderful finds were created by the talented Nancy Schindler of "Round Rabbit". I've admired her unique creations since I first joined Etsy. In fact, this "Victorian Moons" necklace is a staple in my own jewelry wardrobe. Yes, I wear jewelry made by others more than I do my own creations. I'm not a very good walking advertisement for my stuff :) I was delighted to see that Nancy opened up a supply shop called "Round Rabbit Extra", which is filled with her signature porcelain and copper components like the ones you see pictured here. I couldn't resist the cute owl pendant, or the red/blue and caramel ring. I also thought the etched copper pendant with sunburst design was very cool. When we visited Cleveland, OH last summer, I stopped into a bead shop that offered classes on copper etching. I have been tempted to drive the 3+ hours to Cleveland just to attend that class! If they ever start a support group called "Beadaholics Anonymous", I'll be the first to join :)
