I have a passion for Czech glass beads. I love the colors, the cuts, shapes and sparkle. I really like the picasso beads with their addition of a vintage like coating. It seems everything I make these days is with Czech glass....I suppose it is another phase, like the one I just had with the making earrings, so I will roll with it.
These beads are amazing and large at 14 x 16 mm with an amazing luster finish. I did not think they needed much so I just wire wrapped them in copper (I really wanted sterling, but yikes the price!) but in the end I am very pleased with the copper. Instead of doing anything fancy and adding other things to the bracelet I settled on making a chunky wire wrapped toggle. The piece definitely has a "Wilma Flinestone" style.
You can find Rock Candy in my Etsy shop.
I took these pictures yesterday using some of the photography tips I got from this site. It was a dark rainy day and these pictures were taken in front of the window using the foil board. I have never been able to take pictures like this before on a dark day. Good photography is key to showing off your items, so go and check the site out.
