Watermelon Bling

About this design:

Here’s what happened: The magenta magnasite beads were in a small ziploc bag with the purple rondelle magnasite beads. When I looked at them, I thought, gosh, these would work together with another bright contrasting color. The lime seed beads caught my eye and the next thing I knew there was just a lot of bling going on ! None of the elements were from Lima Beads, but I posted a Fresh Pick today inspired by this bracelet - - -


Green lampwork and glass beads, dyed magenta and purple magnasite, purple flat-button shell pearls, magenta crystal bicones, clear crystal rondelles, 3mm silver-plated rounds with lime and white seed beads (all from my stash), along with a silver-plated clasp.

    Love this mixture of colors together Paula. Would work well with jeans and numerous colors of T-shirts, or a nice summery dress. Love it!!

    LOVE it! These colors are SO much fun.
    I have a bunch of those lampwork beads. I’ve been trying to think of a way to use them as focals… rather than the simple “string them all together” piece that I have now but never wear.
    Thanks for the inspiration. :)
