Rasberry ripple

About this design:

These raspberry red beads came in a mixed packet of plastic - maybe acrylic - beads bought for just a few dollars when on holiday. They sing of summer, hot sunny days and ice-creams - especially raspberry ripple - yum.

I've added in some red rondelles, silver bead caps and daisy spacers, plus my new favourite little sparkly silver beads (see post 29 for the same beads). And then I've joined it all up with silver artistic wire wraps. Bring on summer!

    I love your design. Those ‘pink-red plastic (maybe acrylic) beads’ are very pretty; I’ve never seen any like those before. I love a red-pink combination, and combined with the silver it looks so nice!

    This is so pretty! I too hadn’t seen the pink-red beads you used. Nicely done!
