Dreaming Of Spring


About this design:

I started thinking of spring when I pulled out the Golem studio lentil flower bead. So I designed around that bead, wanting to pull the purple and green from it.

Components:

Golem studion flower lentil and green and white tube beads, purple gemstone bead, lampwork purple and green beads, lampwork small light purple spacers from Pinocean. Czech glass squares and rounds, toho 6/0 and 8/0 seed beads, Tierrcast gunmetal heishi and round beads, gunmetal rope clasp.

    I love the colors in this, they’re such a perfect contrast. You really did a beautiful job highlighting the flower bead, and I love how you put it off center. Really fabulous piece

    Awesome colors and mix of bead shapes and textures. You managed to take a beautiful bead that is somewhat “girly” and give it a cool, edgey vibe. Love it!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words! This one came together a lot faster then the heart one, and it was out of my comfort zone for colors. Oh the things you find when you dig a little deeper into that stash :-D

    Wanda, this is utterly gorgeous! I’m always eyeing the Golem Studio pieces, but never buying, because I can’t think what I’d do with them … well, now I know … fantastic.
