Deep Blue Flower

Wow, the color of this bead is so blue, it seems watery somehow. It has just the right amount of sparkle. I only have one of these, so I might have to get more since they are a little small. I'm thinking drop earrings and a dainty bracelet with some 4mm swarovski rounds.

If you had one in all the colors of the rainbow, that would make a really sweet looking choker for girls of any age. As a beader, I have heard the discussion about age-appropriate or situation appropriate jewelry, but if you have something you love, you really ought to wear it. I remember a story that Erma Bombeck wrote as she knew she was coming to the end of her life. She recalled a fancy candle that had been sculpted into a rose. She never burned the candle because she always wanted to keep it in perfect condition. In hind sight, she said she'd go back and enjoy lighting the candle and watching it burn.

Have a great evening!
