I do love a good RED, and for me that means more to the orange side of red. And, this shade of red in a variety of differing beads comes together incredibly adding in some other bright colors - green and turquoise glass beads, with some translucent brass and antique brass metal thrown in for good measure. I actually made the earrings more than a year ago--a beaded bead design by Eileen at Bead Street with Czech rounds with gold little birds added as dangles--and the necklace was made several months ago, which is tubular herringbone using 8.0 sb (a great project for long stretches of straight road in the car headed to and from MT to see our kids/grandkids/granddog!). The pendant is the Wendy Speare design from my recent post, just with a totally different color combo, and the bracelet is newest -- another design by Ella Des taught in a class at Bead Street by Sandy. This combo certainly brightens up any outfit I might be wearing! Ha.
