Hello! Today's bead is a very bright and deep red crackle heart. Wow! I apologize for the shadow on the photo, but I wanted you to be able to see the crackles on the inside of it. This one came from the bead shop in what is called "the short north" in between downtown Columbus and the OSU campus. Byzantium is a bead shop that has been in business for 23 years! The atmosphere is something between 1960's or 70's cool and current day "hip".
If you ever take a drive through Columbus by way of High Street, make sure you stop in, smell the incense, soak in the vibes and LOVE the beads.
