My bead package from my partner Solange in France is here. I took my beads to the office today to take photos while it was daylight. Otherwise I would have to wait until Friday!
I love the texture and color of this collection. The clasp stands out as well as the round shells and beautiful polymer clay green birds. And I love birds! The ceramic focal bead adds wonderful color and organic style. This will be much different than my current choice of material: pearls, crystals and seed beads.
|Brass, adventurine, African trade, shell, abalone, and handmade clay beads.|
|Ceramic Focal Bead and Toggle Clasp - It's mandatory to use both in the design.|
Thank you Solange from France! The brain is starting to warm up to some ideas. I may need to make a trip to my local bead store for some brass wire....
