After a brief vacation to visit my daughter over the Easter weekend, I'm back in Georgia, experimenting with stripped beads reminiscent of a beach landscape. Here are some of the combinations I've come up with:
The small beads are made as described in the previous post: a single color with a stripe of silvered ivory around the equator, accented with silver wire. The larger beads made with stripes of various Effetre colors laid over Seashell Swirl (Vetrofond 955): light turquoise, Nile green opalino, transparent teal and light lapis with a stripe of silvered ivory and a twist with a cubic zirconium in the middle. The larger bead on the left has been fitted with sterling silver bead caps and a bail made from silver wire fitted with a silver bead. As usual, similar beads will soon be on sale in m Etsy shop (etsy.com/shop/DeborahDRoss).
