When the beads arrived, I loved the beautiful rich deep red, turquoise and green shades. Two of the beads had tiny flowers on them. They laid on my bead table while I admired them for a couple weeks and then guess what? I made something and completely forgot to take a picture of the beads - before...!
|Notice the two deep red beads with turquoise flowers.....simply gorgeous beads!|
|Sari silk looks burgundy - Ack! It is supposed to be deep red..... really it is.|
Originally I was going to make a bracelet... my favorite thing to make, but I decided that the combination of colors were calling for some sari silk. I regret that the red sari looks more like burgundy in this picture - but it isn't....just bad lighting here today.
|The green pendant bead with swirls of turquoise and deep red was my inspiration for this piece|
Adding some color to my wardrobe is exactly in order when it is dreary and cold outside. This fun necklace makes me happy and I can't wait to wear it!
