Hog Wild

Once in awhile, I go overboard.  Proof:
I bought 60 turquoise howlite cabochons.

My mother would call this "going hog wild."
So.  Maybe I got carried away.
But, really, all this beauty was irresistible.  Lots of shapes and sizes.  Great mix of colors.
Won't these cabs with the holes be fun to play with?

Since turquoise is one of my favorite colors to bead with, I got a little greedy.  But I was frugal, too, Mom.  At 60 cabs for $50 (due to store promotions), I also love how economical these cabs will be in design.


  1. such a bargain! those teardrops with the drill holes all around them are going to be so much fun to work with. can't wait to see these popping up in your work.

  2. Oh lucky you, turquoise is my favorite color too and these look so inviting I couldn't.t have resisted going hog wild myself!

  3. Oh, my gosh, what a deal! And those teardrops with the holes are so intriguing -- I can hear the gears in your mind working over what to do with these!

  4. A girl after my own heart! Never could pass up a good bargain! hehe!
