Leftovers


About this design:

Used up some left over beads with some copper accents. As I get older I am drawn to reds more and more. Love the lobster claw clasp!

Components:

Lima: Antique copper lobster claw. Along with dark red oval jade bead, Lampwork bead, Swarovski crystals, Cathedral bead, red czech glass beads, and miscellaneous copper beads and twisted jumprings.

    I love red, too. Very creative way to use those leftover beads–looks like you intended this combo all along.

    Thanks so much! I recently was given someone else’s stash of beads they were no longer using. That lone red lamp work bead was among them and has been just waiting for months for me to use it. I was happy I had on hand a decent enough supporting cast of beads.

    Oh this is a perfect mix of “left-overs”. I almost said ‘misfits’, but everything fits perfectly here!

    Don’t you love it when cool beads come your way?
