I've been making jewelry again. This time, the inspiration was the coolest beads. They are a glass bead, coated with a silver-like paint and embedded with chips of colored glass. Instant bead love. But what to do with them?
I found in my bead stash, a bunch of oddball glass beads that matched the chips, and then I found that I had these iridescent red glass beads that I bought on a whim without a plan. None of my silver bead matched the silver color that coated the beads with the colored chips, but I found some clear rectangular bead that would work. On the right below is the finished necklace.
