(B)Ring "B" Kit from The Hole Bead Shoppe

(B)Ring Kit from The Hole Bead Shoppe
I have never been to Bartlesville, OK.  I have been to Oklahoma, but just to visit an aunt that lived there when I was a kid.  Bartlesville is the home of one of my favorite bead store/companies.  The Hole Bead Shoppe is one of my favorite shops to buy from because the sell GORGEOUS Lucite leaves, flowers, and butterflies.  Kelli Burns and her family run the shop and I only know them through the 'net, but I feel like I have known them a long time!  The gals come up with fab designs to use the Lucite in wonderful new ways, and I love it!  These are the newest of their kits and they are in the newest issue of Bead & Button (it is very exciting for them too, as it is their first design featured in B&B)!  Aren't they gorgeous?  The metallic finish on the leaves are really deep and rich, but it is still Lucite so it is very lightweight.  I have one of my rivolis bezel made and now I am embellishing it.  Of course I started on the metallic kit first!  The one I chose is the Antique Copper one on the bottom left in this picture, and it has a sapphire blue rivoli.
