Oh, I love spring! The colors do me in every time.
I have a few new pieces for the shop. Since I had a slight hurdle to overcome on a new line I’ve been thinking about (it just isn’t working! the nerve), I’ve put it on hold for the time being. Instead, I’ve been turning my attention back to my favorite boro beads. I have a decent stash (clearly), so I’ve been working through those the last week. I’ve been picking out ones with new color schemes I haven’t really explored, or at least trying to approach them with the idea of using new colors together.
Like the Aden Earrings – these are incredibly substantial and kind of heavy, so they aren’t for everyone. But wow, does that red really sing. I’ve paired it with pale yellow and pale aqua blue, trying to explore how to use a primary color palette in a different way.
And my Serena Earrings. My gut reaction is to pull out the blues I see in the boros, but I’ve done that before. So, this time, I decided to stick with just purple, and found some keishi pearls that I forgot I had.
As for the Singer Necklace, this was supposed to be a part of the Art Bead Scene’s February beading challenge… but I couldn’t get photos done in time. Still, it’s a bright little rainbow, and I’m loving the way it came together.
And of course, I couldn’t ignore the blues and greens I saw in the boro I used for my Shaine Necklace. But I tried switching it up a little by adding a warm whiskey brown.
What do you think?
I have to say that I’m positively giddy about the change in seasons. I can’t wait to break out the dresses and sandals, and put away the hoodies (though I do love them so). I’m so delighted that I decided to celebrate Spring and St. Patrick’s Day by having a Spring Sale!
