A Recent Piece

The Colours of Tibet

I just love that Moretti 460 - Yellow Ocher. My latest lot is quite greenish, which I don't mind either, but this early bead was made out of my very first 'assortment bundle' of glass from MorettiandMore & has always been a favorite. Maybe it was my Hot Head that allowed the glass to stay a wonderful shade of yellow - who knows, as I certainly can't really recall what the colour was in rod form almost two years ago.

It never sold so last weekend I pulled the 'mini set apart & made it into a bracelet with some lava rock, carnelian rondelles & lashings of Bali silver from my precious wee hoard.

It had been my intention to use plated findings & accent beads - but upon visiting a local bead store & discovering the price of the cheap stuff was only a few cents short per bead locally, of what I had paid at the time for this silver I just couldn't bring myself to buy it.
Looking at this I am so pleased that I didn't!

Deb, that is a stunning use of color and glass! The carnelian rondelles really set off the yellow, too. It's beautiful.
