Color Families

Spring has arrived! Or so the calendar says. Judging by the amount of snow still on the ground and the inch that fell this morning, I call BS.

Warmer weather, however, has definitely arrived. The days of sub-zero, suck-the-life-right-out-of-you temperatures are behind us. That means I can dust off and fire up the torch.

After a 3 month hiatus I decided to play around with some variety shapes, staying within a color family. Normally I stick to a specific style when making sets, but this time I decided to focus on the colors as a whole and the joy of shaping.

The spring green reacted with itself and made for some lovely striations, while the turquoise left trails of tiny bubbles that some may consider a flaw - but I find add character. Purple was the natural choice to complete the trifecta and bring them together as a set.

I find I often work in trios of colors - although usually all within the same bead. This was a lot of fun and I have a feeling these kind of sets will be showing up in my work more often.

These beads will be listed on a Facebook auction group this Wednesday - unless you message me first.
