Amethyst Leaf

Today's bead is in the spotlight to show off the nice variations of color running through it. This is such a good example of layering a variety of similar colors to give a bead some depth. I'm not sure there are amethyst colored leaves in real life, but I guess that's the beauty of bead design....imagination!

This bead would look interesting twisted together on wire with a bunch of other leaf beads in a variety of deeper tone colors. A nice long dangle would definitely give it some added flair!
