I got four packets of Crystal Jams, which are a 1 gross (144 pieces) mix of 4mm Swarovski xillions and bicones in complimentary color themes AND they all have cute names too! They are $12.00 per packet (which works out to $.08 per bead-CHEAP!).
I got (from L to R, top row) Walking on Sunshine and True Colors and (from L to R, bottom row) Jailhouse Rock and I Knew the Bride
I also got these cool, copper gears and sprockets. $4.10 for a dozen pieces per style ($.34 per each).
And last but not least, I picked up these beautiful, faceted smoky quartz beads. Here is why going to the R & T Bead Tour shows is such a great thing...These beads are 50% off the ticketed price and then another 15% off on top of that! So the 6mm faceted rounds are tagged at $23.00, so that means I got the strand for $9.78! The 16x20mm ovals are tagged $32.5o; I paid $13.81!
While I was there, I also got to meet Dave Robertson of Rings & Things (he is in charge of us blog partners). He was really nice and we had out picture taken and he will post that on the Rings & Things Blog! Look for it!
