My new beads finally arrived. All of them. And I am ecstatic. For a while there, I thought some of them had gotten lost in the mail. Lucky for me, they were just delayed. So, what do you think?

Aren't they gorgeous? They're all artist-made lampwork beads that I bought from Etsy and Ebay. The purple, blue and cream spacer beads as well as the blue-and-orange discs are from River Oak Acres while the smaller rondelles in the middle - with swirls of colour - are from Etsy seller Outwest. Here's a close-up so you can see the swirls of green and purple and I don't know what else:

I'm loath to use any of them in a piece of jewellery since I just want to hoard them LOL. I'll have to think long and hard about how I'm going to incorporate them in my work. I'm leaning towards maybe a bracelet with cord. Any ideas?
