Bright Orange is In!

Well, I don't really know if that's true, but I have seen quite a bit of orange lately!

I bought these nice bright orange czech glass beads at a bead store Friday so I can use them in a piece of jewelry I am planning to make for a friend. I want to use the cane glass beads that I mentioned a while ago and I also have some swarovski crystal bicones in hyacinth that will go nicely too.

The only thing left to do is DESIGN IT! Gee, is that all! That's the part I enjoy the most, but the part that can also be frustrating if the inspiration doesn't come right away. I'm going to get them out and start studying them all together so the ideas will flow more freely. Sometimes all it takes is going through each container, collecting possible candidates and putting them all together. However, that is also how all my beads get out of control!!

I hope you are all having a great weekend! If you are receiving inspiration for these beads, as always, send it my way!! :)

Orange is in if you say it's in. Bloggers set the trends. *snap*

Those beads look delicious! I've been working with large beads for a year now and I find they really add flare to a piece. I recently switched to a bulk supplier, Stones and Findings, for their faceted stones! If you have time you should check them out :) Their faceted 'orange' citrine is fabulous! I think i have their URL somewhere...okay added a hyperlink for ya! Hope to see what you create with those beads up on your blog!
