I am fascinated by the blending of the colors of the aurora borealis. My Aurora beads are inspired by that unbelievable event.
The beads are assorted translucent colors over a deep black and white gold leaf base. To date, I've made them in a tab shape and a pillow shape.

See what you think. Thanks for looking!! Tim

I saw an aurora for the first time a few months ago, and it was so so beautiful, just like these beads!

These are really cool. When I saw them I had the feeling that they burnt me or something. They are so strange and extraterestrial-looking. Now when I look at them I can find pictures made from the black lines showing through the colour. It's not only the colours that remind you of auroras, it actually looks like snow and outlines of trees all bathed in the different colours.

They are beautiful.
