Brush Dance journal sale continues

Until June 30th, all Brush Dance Journals are for sale at only $3 each. This includes their Impressions, Flex, Magnet Closed, Illustrated, Hardcover, Reflection and Pocket style journals. That's quite a deal and I'm guessing that at these prices, the journals won't be coming back.

My favorite are listed under the Reflection category—the wire-bound journals with lined pages on the right side and unlined pages on the left. These are fantastic so, of course, I bought more.

Here are my Bijoux Earrings using 4mm tigereye beads (left) and 4mm garnet beads (right) instead of 4mm pearls:

Here are my Elizabethan Earrings using 6mm tigereye beads (left) and 6mm faceted amethyst beads (right) instead of 6mm fire-polished beads:
