Bead Fest Energy

I just returned from Bead Fest in Philadelphia and I'm experiencing that strange combination of exhaustion and creative buzz that always follows my return home.  Today's earrings feature some of my new Bead Fest treasures.
The ceramic flowers were made by Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio.  Although Diana wasn't vending at Bead Fest this year, I stayed with her for a few days and picked up these pretty charms from her at that time.
I bought quite a few wood beads at Bead Fest this year.  They came in such yummy colors that I just couldn't resist.  The nice thing about these beads is that although the cubes are somewhat on the large side, they are so lightweight that they are totally comfortable to wear.

The flowers remind me of our dahlias that are blooming in profusion right now.  You can hang onto summer through early October with these earrings and with late blooming dahlias.  Enjoy!  The Dahlia Earrings are available in my shop.


  1. Sweet summer fun! I would never have guessed those were wood beads. Reminds me that I have a huge pile of wood beads in various tones from the last two years at Bead & Button! I best get making! Enjoy the day. Erin

  2. Ooooooooo thanks for using my charms! Super cute earrings!
