Of course I always see beads that I desire, however I can reign it in when needs be (sometimes). What I wasn't prepared for was when another collector had reduced their prices on some beads I'd liked... to the point where I was totally restrained, oh for all of about 2 minutes when I saw them.
2 quick mouse clicks later (and a short message just in case you thought I was using the mouse clicks as morse code) and pink bud and the limited edition Snow Swirls from the Christmas Kit were winging their way to me... May just be the quickest transaction to date, posted about 90 minutes after the first message, so requested, paid, packed and posted in record time!
here by Endangered Trolls, it's a spacer and much smaller than normal beads. I've shown it next to a normal bead and a prism so you can see the size comparison with production beads. I'd really like another one but I'm being good on the bead buying (at long last) as I'm waiting to spend my final indulgence of September on something special.
Baby's breath was not released in the UK; this was bought from another collector. The trollbead community are very generous when there are limited releases in other countries; helping out those who don't live there, or who can't, or who are not yet comfortable buying internationally and quite a few of us have benefited from their kindness in getting hold of these to pass on. To be honest it's probably more considerate to my bank balance if I don't yet buy from abroad as I've seen some stunning beads from other collectors around the globe!!!
