I've been experimenting with Christmas earring designs. I searched for 'red' oval beads and this multi-colored bead showed up. At first I hesitated, because I was looking for a solid red color, but decided to take a chance on this bead and I'm glad I did. They are a composite of colors that have somehow been bonded to form the beads. Some of the colors have a depth and translucent quality, while other parts of the beads are opaque. The experiment continued when I added a weave to the side and the cherry on top, or in this case bottom, is a Swarovski crystal. They are going on my display, in time for the doors to open on Black Friday, at Carolina Mountain Artists Guild in Hendersonville, NC item EK53 $26 https://www.facebook.com/CarolinaArtists
Thank you for stopping by. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
