1970's Hip

You might have spotted today's bead in yesterday's mess-o-beads grouping, but it really deserves a spotlight for a day! I just love this color combination! "How 70's!"

There is something so familiar about the striping on this bead that makes me think of a shirt hanging in a closet next to a nice looking polyester leisure suit. This sort of striping made a come-back in clothing in the 90's and again a few years ago. Styles never really go out of fashion, they just get slight adjustments. I think you could "update" this bead by interspersing it with several gold strands of rectangular chain links which are still enjoying some popularity.

Have a great evening!!
