It's funny how your beadwork will reflect in your clothes, or is it your clothes represent your beadwork. I have this cardigan - limes, blue and periwinkle - and have had it for years. But over the weekend, I thought that I didn't have any blue in my wardrobe, mostly greens. Until I remembered this sweater. So I go it out. I made a green crystal bracelet, and then decided to make the same kind of bracelet with small turquoise beads that I have had for years.
Since I have been making beaded beads (ala Marcia DeCoster) to learn the technique, I decided to make a couple using some blue beads that were given to us by one of the Bead Cruise sponsors (Heather, Bev - help me with the name of the company, I can't remember). I just added a few size 15's in lime green for pop. And I have had the earrings since last summer when I made them for the Bead and Button show.
And here's Liz - all colour coordinated - even down to the lime green in her eyeglasses. Sorry, no picture of me, not until I loose 20 pounds.
