There is no way one can pick ONE favorite from these shops! It's UNpossible! I am picking the first fave I had.

GraceBeading December 3, 2008 at 4:07 PM  

Man oh man... another really tough choice. I have to go with the Black Panther Bracelet by Triz, that piece is drop dead gorgeous!

I also adore the Gotcha cat and mouse bracelet by SmadarsTreasure

such a fun piece. I had to mention it!

Dana December 4, 2008 at 1:20 PM guys are trying to KILL me with droolation...I practically drowned just looking through the shops!!! I bookmarked a bunch of you! Anyway, I think the Green Jasper Cuff by Cielo Design (item #16835059) is my fave, although it's closely followed by "A Woman of Many Colors" by Misty Ridge Beads and even though I know this doesn't count as a "cuff" bracelet, I LOVE "Dark Nudibranch Bangle" by Malodora! See what I mean? You guys are killing me!
