Plum and Gold TimberstoneTurnings

My very first stick from TimberstoneTurnings (etsy)! This is a resin stick with swirls of gold and plum, 6 1/4" long, and in the Chloe shape. The original listing is here. It's gorgeous and very comfortable to wear. It's weird to wear a plain stick after using mainly Flexi-8s for the last 3-4 months, but I'll get used to it. I tried really hard to take pictures of this stick, but it's damn near impossible to get a good one..

Kitty-flexi and more rubies

Two little flexis arrived a while ago, but due to lots of work and quite a bit of laziness, I haven't gotten around to taking any pictures until now. Here are the second and third members of the Itty Bitty Flexi-8 Committee. I already have both of these in size Mega. I have only taken an action picture of the Kitty-flexi, because I couldn't be bothered to take the bun down and do it again (it would take about 30 seconds, but there's no way I'm doing it!!). The bus is a pinless bun with two rope braids.

Black Nickel and Sapphire

Please welcome the first member of the "Itty Bitty Flexi-8 Committee". This is a size Large flexi-8. It's tiny! So impossibly small compared to size Mega and XL. It's perfect for a pinless braided bun though, which is great, because I ordered 3 other L flexis before this one even had arrived. Now, picture time!

Autumn's Ruby Bouquet

My flexi-8 of the month! It's here!! Sooner than I had expected (I thought it would be here tomorrow)! I wont bore you with lots of writing, I just want to say that it's gorgeous!! And I apologize for the slightly out of focus action picture. I took several, but none looked good. This is the best. I think my camera can't handle the beauty of this flexi-8. 
As always, clicky for bigger, better pictures!

Brilliant Bloom

Fun story behind this flexi-8. I originally ordered a custom flexi, the Open Flower in Antique Gold with Sapphire AB beads instead of regular AB beads.
 ^This one, but with blue beads. The size is XL.

After a while I got an email from Steve at, who thought my custom request sounded very similar to a brand new LillaRose design that hadn't been released in the shop yet. He sent me a few pictures of it and offered to let me change my order to the other design, which I of course did. Currently I'm the only one who has this piece, but once it's available in the shop, I suggest you get one because it's gorgeous! The flower has three tiny AB beads in the middle. 

Update! It's available on LillaRose!

Tree of Life

This piece is pure elegance in my opinion. I love the simple, white beads, and the sparkly, yet not over-the-top centerpiece. It looks so much prettier in person. Clicky for bigger pictures!

Harvest Freestyle

I finally got my October Flexi of the Month from LillaRose! It arrived on the same day that the November FotM was released. I've already purchased that one in Mega by the way and it's on the way here, because how could I not?? It's so beautiful!

Anyway, this post is about last month's flexi. It arrived along with two other flexis, but I decided to give each flexi its own post. I've already posted pictures on the Flexi-8 Action Picture-page, but I have some more detailed shots to share here. So, without further ado, here's the Harvest Freestyle!
