These beaded beads are definitely my new addiction!
I have been beading different coloured variations of them for a few months now but was limited by the colours I could get hold of.
But I recently found a new supplier of the crystals so have a whole new palette to play with!
My first choices of colours were this coral red, the lovely blue, silver, gold and copper
I mixed and matched them to come up with three different variatons using appropriately coloured seed beads:
I combined the coral red with gold and a dark gold seed bead for a rich, warm look
I paired the blue with the silver and dark grey seed beads to bring out the cold shine in all the colours
I also paired the blue with the copper and dark gold seed beads to change how the blue looks. In this variation I think the blue reflects the copper and gold and becomes much warmer. Wht do you think? Compare it with the blue in the picture above and let me know.
These will be launched as a kit very soon so sign up for my newsletter to find out when- and keep an eye out for any other colour variations I come up with!
