Here are two compositions with pink accents. I would love to have a few more of the tiny pink ruffle beads, so if you see any for sale, please let me know!
Some more fancy Venetian & Bohemian beads...
I am in awe how you manage to get the smaller matching beads on the green necklace and on the previous post. How long does that take???
I think some of the beads on the green strand go back about 5 years. Some of the striped ones were purchased recently since they matched the ones I already had.
I've been accumulating Venetian beads for 12 years. I keep them sorted by color and then by the shade of the color. I periodically sift through my collection to see if there are enough beads to complete a design. If I like a bead or a group of coordinating beads, but don't have enough, I paste an image of the ones I need in my "bead journal" Then when I'm traveling or going to shows, I can refer to my notes and pictures.
Pretty obsessive- compulsive, right?
To me this is just efficient bead hunting with a purpose! Great tactic, I might borrow this :-)
To show off the fancy elbow bead, I combined with small Krobo "crumb" disks.
The second necklace has a set of really fine Venetian barrel beads set off with a few large black coral beads from an old prayer strand.
Happy All Hallows Eve and Dia de los Muertos to everyone!
Please post your favorite spooky beads!
