I had chosen 4 amber beads to make up a kit of 6 beads in a "buy 5 get 1 bead free deal". Only I wasn't 100% sure on 1 of the ambers so I asked the seller to pull another 5 amber beads so I could have a look at some more - I decided I'd replace 1, maybe 2 of my original choice with 1 or 2 from the other 5.

The seller sent me some gorgeous photos and therein my problems started; because whilst in the group of 4 I wasn't sure on 1, maybe 2... in a group of 7 they all looked amazing. Thankfully someone else had already snagged the other 2 I'd chosen or my guess is I would have bought all 9.
So what's a girl to do? I decided despite my lack of bead budget I really needed to keep this group together! My only saving grace was that I didn't add any more beads to this to make up 2 kits of 6... no really I didn't actually do that; though it was sooo tempting!

Now I have 9 ambers... time to try out a half amber bracelet.
Lots of sparkle and now I can finally tell you where my Jugend and Transformation beads ended up!
