So last summer, my mom was walking around Maple Valley Days (our little city fair in WA) and she stopped at this booth with the most beautiful beads she had ever seen. They are made by the nicest lady named Cindy. Here is a little about her and her shop from Etsy:
Cindy Carpenter is the sole designer for Bella, her business for 9 years. Her love of the ocean comes through in each piece, whether it be in color, fresh water pearls or the tiny mermaid that you will find hidden on many pieces that is done in love for her “two mermaids”, Emily & Abby. She uses Swarovski crystals, pearls, beachglass, vintage and lampwork beads and finishes her work with a signature sterling heart clasp.
Cindy was so sweet to send me one of her Mermaid Keychains. These pieces truly seem like a piece of treasure when you hold them in your hand. There are so many pretty beads on them and are from all over the world.
Cindy has generously offered one of my lucky readers a set of beads. These are so beautiful and you can make any piece of jewelry you would like! I think I would make some earrings with mine...
These ones are called Disneyland :)
There are so many other sets that I love.
Also, she is currently raising money for Japan by donating all of the earnings from her Japan Beads. They are just $5 each and come on a piece of black hemp that you can wear as a bracelet:
To enter to win the set of beads first go take a look at Cindy's bead sets then come back here and tell me which set is your favorite.
