Autumn is also my busiest show season and this year I've signed up to do four—yes, FOUR!—craft shows within the next 7 weeks!! EEK!! So I'm trying to build up my bead and jewelry inventory as much as possible, which means digging up some old "recipes" of past popular designs that will compliment my newer ones.
I recently finished up a few sets inspired by this bead I created last year:
|Fairy Dust European Charm Bead|
And this is one of the new "nuggety" sets with a slightly more Chartreuse tint (which also happens to be one of the Pantone color trends for this Fall):
|Green Gossamer Nuggets|
And here is another popular past favorite, but using a different silver glass and technique:
|Wisteria Waves No. 2|
I love the gradated colors ranging from purples, blues and robin egg in the "waves," with rims of a pale brownish olive green. These were some of the hardest beads to capture on camera, and I wish you could see how much prettier and softer looking these are in person. I've just listed them in my Etsy shop and will be making more for my upcoming shows. To me, these totally say "Autumn" and I think I'll have to make a set for myself too! *Ü*
