I've been experimenting with this for a week now. Have a lot more examples that I haven't photographed yet, but I really liked this one and took a photo this morning. Last night's batch also has some lovely greens. I only opened one to have a peek. I won't be able to examine and photograph those for another day or two! =^..^=

I can't wait to see more experiments! The texture and colors in this bead are so intriguing. They remind me of koi fish and sea coral.  I'd love to see how you incorporate it into something.

Thanks!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Here's some more of my experiments:



I haven't had a lot of time to actually work these into finished pieces of jewelry although I have been giving that a lot of thought. I'm probably going to try some embroidery and beads on some of these to see how I like that. These beads are very lightweight which makes for some problems in terms of draping. I believe I figured out a good way to make use of them last night which I hope to get to try before too long! In the middle of editing a lot of classes so not entirely sure when I will find the time, but hope it won't be too long! =^..^=
