    I love the feel of fresh spring leaves this pick shares. The pieces aren’t heavy looking so they add that airy feel.

    Being a green lover, this is right down my alley. Have admired your top left bead for a long time, but didn’t think how to use it. There are some great pieces here!

    Peridot’s my birthstone and your super collection of beads (& olivine owlet!) really celebrate its color!

    Yum. You did set a challenge for yourself, Nancy, and fine job pulling it off! The painted lime powder glass bead is so wonderful, but indeed very tricky to coordinate with too specifically. I think you got just the right eclectic mix without getting too busy as to draw too much attention away from the focal bead or beads. The starflower beads are a fine example. And I just love the owlet, too, to include at any chance. I have [him] in my stash, peeking at me when I open the trunk up, asking, “Is it my turn? I think you should make me into something for Emma.” (Emma is my niece. She likes owls.)

    Wow, this is pretty ! These are not even my favorite colors, but I was drawn to the mix of color and texture. Great job, Nancy !
