Did everyone get their beads? I hope everyone's have arrived safe and sound!

My bead was the green aventurine carved roses. They were all so pretty! I just got the chain today to start making a bracelet out of them. I will post the pic as soon as I am done!

I haven't got mine yet, but I am international and we just had a big blizzard for the last few days, so no mail has been making it through. I'm sure they'll come soon and be lovely, though. Wanna bet I go into labour the day they arrive?

I haven't received mine yet. I am hoping they're just taking their time making it to the west coast.

Great to hear everyone! I just got my chain yesterday to wrap them on. Now i just need some artistic inspiration to get started!

Maricopa Mom- I live in Montana so actually thought you would be one of the first to get them. Please keep me updated, Ok?

I got mine last night, thank you everyone for such beautiful beads

I spent well over an hour searching for one crimper bead to finish off my necklace, I know I have a handful somewhere lol. Looks like I'm off to the bead store tomorrow

You will have to post a pic when you are done!

Same thing happened to me but mine was chain. I thought all along that I had some but found out that I didn't have enough! Hope to work on it tonight.
