Red, Ivory, Green



I do tend to get "stuck" on shapes, colors, and types of beads when I "torch."
Lately, it's been red, ivory, and green.
Red and green are for obvious reasons.
Re and Ivory,
well,
I just love those colors together!


Here's an organic heart I made using red and ivory.
I added a little silver leaf.
Nummy colors and textures!


How could I write this post without including headpins?
These are headpins that are ready for the holidays!
Christmas is coming!


I love this bead!
I love the colors and the murrini.
I am normally murrini applying impaired,
but, this time,
it worked!
You can find some of my murrini here.


These beads are mini spacers.
They seem to be ready for Christmas, but,
I think someone could use them any time of the year.

Last, but not least,
here's the dragonfly bead!
I love, love, love this one!
I've been working on dragonflies for over a year now.
I am finally PLEASED with this one!


Now, I have a question for you.
When working on a technique for a bead or a piece of jewelry or whatever,
what is the longest time you have worked on a technique to develop it and be happy
with the results?
I'm anxious to hear your answers!

I agree agree!!! i like the Red and Ivory! Especially SIS on Red it calms the red down and gives it a warm feeling:) I like it!

First, I really like what you've done!

Second, I wish I had an answer! I just started to work on dots and stringer before the contractors took over my studio for their power supply while building on to our house. Poo.

I love your dragonfly! My answer for the longest time is (insert drumroll, please) "I don't know because if I love doing something, then I practice it over and over and never even realize how much time has gone into it. On the other hand, if I hate something, I wimp out after about five minutes of practicing!"
