Show Me Sunday!

Last week, I asked for examples of handmade art beads and components in blue tones.  I received many links to great items, thanks so much!  Here are four of those items.These lovely items can be found at the following links:

Forget Me Not polymer beads by Continuum Designs
Handmade blueberry colored ceramic button by White Clover Kiln 
Copper and turquoise rectangle components by SLA Artisan
Set of Handmade lampwork glass beads by Glassbead

  But I still want to see more!  Do you have any great blue beads that you have made or have seen?  Leave a link here in the comments and I may pick it to show on the blog next week.  

And here is what some of our beady blogger friends are up to this week:

Forgive me, but I am new to blogging and I do not know how to paste a picture into this box but I have some blue druzy agate beads I used to make a bracelet along with some Swarovski bicone beads.

Your items are stunning!
