With the holidays fast approaching I wanted to do a set of beads with lots of sparkle and shine…
To that I added dichroic glass, silver glass, 23K gold leaf, sparkly goldstone, cubic zirconia, handmade murrini and more!
These beads are so much prettier in person, especially in direct sunlight!
This next collection was inspired by a recent vacation – I wanted to recreate the liquid blue colors of tropical water with a punch of color for contrast. The result is a nice blend of turquoise and transparent aqua blue with rich coral and subtle black outlined details.
I love the look of scrolls and raised flowers – to me these two design elements have an antique yet timeless feel to them.
For this set I used sparkly blue aventurine stringers for the scrollwork and clear encased Davinci silver glass for the 3 petal flowers. The base is a yummy combination of ivory and transparent light toffee colored glass.
Until next time…
