I love getting new things to work with, and often I find I’m as inspired by the random play of strands as I might be by more considered choices. This lastest batch of gems and glass from Cherry Tree Beads had me over the moon. Just look at these luscious colors! I decided to capture these photos before I separated the strands. Watch for some beautiful things inspired by these combos, coming soon!
Pictured, top to bottom: Freshwater pearls, crystal rondelles, mookaite rondelles, picture jasper rondelles, picutre jasper nuggests, mookiate rodelles (because I love saying “mookaite rondelles”), Cherry Creek jasper, lapis, Indian lampwork glass, and more picture jasper.
