In the center are some inexpensive turquoise beads and a fossil (no clue what it is) sliced in half. These came from Sparkling Creations in Hood River.
On the right are some glass beads, copper heishi like beads, Roman glass beads (just had to have them) seed bead size turquoise, seed bead size lapis and some base metal beads.
Close up of some of the beads. The multicolor ones and cobalt blue ones I plan to use as accent beads with the polymer clay. They have large holes and should work well with leather and other thicker stringing material.
Hopefully I'll get my butt in gear and have some new things to post. I have a couple of little projects I worked on during the trip that I'm nearly done with. Since getting home, I've made three, count them three, polymer clay beads. I'm might even get them in the oven by the end of the year, lol
