I Heart Macro May 29, 2011

It's Sunday and time for "I Heart Macro" slash "I Heart Close Ups: Up Close Photography for Macro Makers and the Camerologically Challenged". Join Lori Plyler of Studio Waterstone and blog your up close/macro picture of the week.
 This week I'm sharing beady goodness!

 Our local bead shop is having a wonderful sale this weekend and these are some of the beads that I picked up.  There were too many beautiful beads to choose from, but I managed to stay just under my set budget.

The top picture is a gorgeous carved wood bead, then an ammonite (with beautiful red flashing), and the last shot is a mixture of Porcelain Jasper and  some lovely green and caramel colored beads (the name of which I forgot to write down. I hate when I do that!).

Check out all of the wonderful macro/up close shots posted at Lori's website. Join in the fun and add your picture of the week!
