Tangerine Dreams

About this design:

I grew up in So Calif and remember picking tangerines from the citrus groves on my way to elementary school. The aroma was intoxicating. These tangerine colored beads reminded me of those days. Tangerine flowers are white but I wanted to continue with the orange theme.

    This definitely reminds me of tangerines. It’s a beautiful color. Also, I love the unique pendant part of the necklace. The flat chain is going to sit well on the neck. It’s very pretty, some might even say ”blingy”, which of course is what makes love it.

    Thanks kye. I put a row of the yellow beads on each side of the earrings in case they flip around.

    Tangerine–my favorite color! This is a lovely piece to remind us of warmer times ahead. This cold snap we’re having in AZ has me all bundled up & freezing–how many layers can I add and still be able to move around comfortably? I especially like the addition of the calypso petals to your pendant–nice touch. Great work Beady…you are very creative & talented.

    Thanks CC – I am thinking about warmer times. Today rain and wind but it is 52 degrees – so better. Replied to your message (finally). Have a great day.
