Modern Design Leaf

Today's bead is a fun variation of the good old leaf bead. Leaf beads are great and can add realism to your floral inspired jewelry designs. This particular leaf bead has some modern design elements that will give your jewelry pieces a modern, artsy flair as well. It is slightly chunky and has subtle faceted-like indentations which give it that modern feel, maybe even a little art deco-like with the slightly brighter green color. It would be great to have some chunky tulip-like glass beads in colors that are slightly darker than primary, like a dark red and purple.

Hope you are wrapping up your weekend by doing something fun! Take care!!
