Multi-colored Glass Beads Bracelet

By on September 7, 2011

See the pearlescent teal blue, dark purple and black flowers nesting against the translucent purple leaves, the sparkling, twinkling hearts when the lights fall on them, the tiny micro shining beads, the pearl beads, the myriad hues of metallic purple and muad and the little you can see of the yellow copper eye pins and head pins used.

Indeed, colors and designs come together to form a thing of beauty.
