SPRING LOADED TRIANGLES
A new design by TrendSetter Marcia Balonis aptly named "Spring Loaded", learned in a class taught by Sandy Taylor @ Bead Street. Dang it, my photos came out slightly overexposed - it was pretty bright out this morning when I took the pics. But, you can still get the idea of how incredible the blues and the turquoise colors mesh in this design. The dark blue pearls are absolutely incredible -- really a warm shade. I actually changed the design slightly and added the Czech flowers in the center, instead of round button beads as in the original design - you really can use anything that's 10mm without having to alter the number of 11.0's you use. I'm in the process of completing this set with earrings and a necklace. Will post when finished. Thanks Eileen for providing such wonderful beads so we can all make beautiful jewelry!!!! Couldn't do it without you!
