FREE Glass Bead Focal | Oh! Clio

WOULD SOMEONE PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY AND TELL ME WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS FUGLY ARSED BEAD??? I HATE her! I loved her when I made her but then the evil non paying bidder Teresa Baze had to buy her. I’ve tried… and tried and tried and tried… to sell her since. I think I’ve relisted her more than 20 times! I’ve reduced her greatly from the price the evil one was paying and still no takers. IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH HER? Does she just have bad Juju?? Are new pics needed?? I need to end the worst experience of my selling career… This is how the listing goes…

BIN: $ 30.00

I can’t take any more…So here’s the deal: You spend $70 or more on my glass beads or glass bead jewelry, she is FREE! Just click the button for $75 or more purchased and you will not be charged.  Or if you are the only human being on earth to actual want to buy her, click the $30 button.

I hope she brings you great luck and joy… She is STUNNING IN PERSON!

Goldfish Necklace | Crocheted Lampwork Jewelry

koi pond necklace by Holly's Folly

GOLDFISH NECKLACE. The crocheted necklace is made of both metallic core and matte e-beads, 6 mm Swarovski crystals, Size 8 orange beads, and Czech pressed glass floral and leaf beads. All were hand strung to satisfy my strange brain’s desire for “randomness” and crocheted on heavy cotton cord. Bali bead caps and sterling toggle clasp round out the basic necklace. I should mention I crocheted this with a 3 beads per round so this is much smaller diameter piece than I’ve made in the past.

The tassel is made on 19 strand beading wire woven through the necklace and crimped. The three art beads were worked in randomly and all ends were crimped for finishing. $189.00
