Winter & Holiday Lampwork Beads

I am fully in holiday mode! Usually it takes a while for me to get in the spirit of the season (probably from living in SoCal where we can be in the mid-80’s in December). But this year, for some reason, I’ve really gotten into the holidays early. πŸ˜€

This week’s beads reflect that wintery and festive mood –

“Sea Jewels” Lampwork Glass Bead Set

Sea Jewels lampwork bead set

It’s been weeks since we’ve enjoyed our traditionally sunny weather SoCal is so famous for. Instead, we’ve been under a dense and chilly cloud cover for much too long!

But, as usually happens, it helps me be inspired to create. So there is a plus side! πŸ˜€

When it’s overcast different colors are seen at the beach and in the ocean. All the hues are softened, and much more muted than when they’re under direct sunlight.

This glass bead set “Sea Jewels” captures the recent mood of the weather at the beach here in not-so-sunny SoCal. πŸ˜‰
