New Items Up at Etsy Using New Photo Layout Ideas
After mailing my son's packages, I made a stop at Global Beads and picked up some beautiful quartz beads with threads of gold in them. I had some other glass beads I'd been trying to figure out how to use, and I think I'm on to something by combining them with the new quartz - I'm just not sure yet.
One of the things that has me hesitating, is that I found 12 tiny round beads in the mixes I bought down at Beadniks in Santa Monica that go perfectly with the glass beads - but not enough of them for the full design. If you know where I can find more of those small round beads, please let me know!
The other thing is that the quartz seems a bit 'rich' against the pattern of the glass beads.
I'm working on a new piece in the meantime, this one of yellow glass and white mother of pearl 'rice' beads, which I think will be a beautiful eyeglass lanyard when it's finished.
