* Bead Hoarders Blog Hop... # Reveal

20th July is reveal day for "Lori Anderson bead hoarders blog hop"...sorry to late... :)
Lori challenged us to use our own hoarded stash and make as many pieces as we like...
I confess, I am a "bead hoarders"..... beads are my treasure... :D
I often bought beads although I had no idea what would ever do with it because I'm afraid if I can't have it anymore or because it too special... :)
Now my treasure are overload...
I spend a lot of money to buy beads but have a little creativity... ups... :)

I am ashamed to show how much my treasure that I just save up for a long time ... :D
I realized that I'm lack creativity... but I didn't stop buying beads... ^_^
I have a disease called bead addiction... *LOL
Most of my collections are Indonesia traditional glass beads from Gudo - Jombang...
But I also love gemstone and ceramic...
Now I collect crochet thread too... I need new cabinet... :D 
This is just a little beads of treasures that I picked of my hoarded stash...

...krobo beads & gypsum carved beads from Ghana...

These are traditional glass beads from ghana named krobo beads...except the round bead is gypsum carved bead...
I got these beads from my lovely friend who lives in Accra - Ghana now...

And these lampwork beads set below are from "Manik Jawa"...
I got these last month because I'm the first winner of challenge named BOM! (Beads of Mystery)...

And here are what I made with them...

...bracelet #1...
...bracelet #2...


I love challenge like this because it makes me have a new spirit again...
