Contemporary Green Bead

About this design:

As we beaders have from time to time one lost bead just aching to be made into something right ? Here's my lonely bead.... Hey...Beaded Old Lady..use me please !!!!


An oldie bead; but, a goodie bead. It is a contemporary swirled art deco kinda of a bead. Decided to use gold findings with whatever I had in my bead stash. I'm not sure what the dark green gemstones are as they are old. I used 6mm purple glass rondelles with gold spacers. 8mm light pink diamond shaped crystals with gold spacers. A simple stylish one at that..not a lonely bead anymore.
