Exclusive Patina Work at Lima Beads

Oh Boy, was I ever thrilled when the buyer for Lima Beads contacted me and asked for a price list.
To be among such fine company as Jangles, C-Koop, Humble Beads
Earthenwood Studio and Gaea, must mean I am creating something of value to the art bead community, right?
The folks at Lima beads have an excellent vision for jewelry making and I am very glad to be a part of it.
Not only is the website really fun to shop, but they have remained focused on the community of jewelry makers, giving us site features like Fresh Picks, The Garden, and the Design Gallery .

Here is the reason I like them;
Oh. Yay. Baby.
I can't get enough.
Lima Beads will be carrying exclusive components from me. 
Beads, links and toggles in colors you can't get elsewhere. 

And a complete Chestnut Opal Collection that includes 2 washes of brown patinas and mica shimmer.
This is my favorite from the whole lot. 
I have had a vision in my head about the kind of brown I would like to create with and while the chestnut alone is wonderful; earthy and rich, the new combination of the 2 brown shades gives the components a variegation and the mica takes it out of this world.

Because I am big on shopping at one place for all your needs, I will be posting regular design ideas that includes parts you can purchase from Lima Beads in one shipment.
This means I have a perfectly good reason to blow a couple hundred at Lima Beads so I am off to shop, hope to see you there!
