Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

The day has arrived, so we wouldn't all suffer too much from hop withdrawal the wonderful Lori Anderson gave us the Bead Hoarders Blog Hop. What a great idea because as much as some of us (me) try to deny it we are all hoarders. I could have created so many pieces  but didn't organize myself well enough (some other pieces have been started, but not yet ready). Remember this.....

Well it with a few additions from the hoard it became this....
I wasn't crazy about the dirty silver scarab so with a little ingenuity he became blue. The long bugle beads had been in my stash for some time but I couldn't figure out what to do with them, they were the perfect final

I hope you all enjoy!
