So...I've been out of town for the last few days and didn't have plans for what I was going to blog about today.  I was lucky enough to find a Bead store in Reno that was new for me and I did some splurging on beads I've always loved but never purchased.
So because I didn't plan ahead the AJE readers are going to reap the rewards!!

The name of the store is
Beads Etc

I'm going to give away bits and pieces of my wonderful bead finds!!

Ancient Vaseline Glass Beads from Africa in beautiful yellow
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranium_glass

More Ancient Vaseline Glass Beads from Africa in beautiful jewel tone green

Shiny AB coated teeth

Gorgeous faceted AB Glass Beads 

Amazing little Metal (Brass?) beads

Jasper slabs in all shapes.

Here's how the giveaway will work

 (please read all the information carefully!):

  • I will give away a small collections of the beads shown above.
  • Please include your EMAIL address in your comment so that I can contact you ASAP should you win. If I am unable to contact you I will choose another name from the list.
  • Comment to win, share on FaceBook and comment for another entry, share on twitter and comment, Blog...etc etc, you get the idea. Lots of chances to enter.
  • The winner will be announced Wednesday morning, February 13, 2013.
