Beading Staples - Czech Beads

As the summer weather starts to wind down I find myself longing again for those hot sunny days. Don't get me wrong, I love the fall. The only problem with fall is it ends in winter. And I'm not a big fan of winter :)
But, why get ahead of myself? Fall is a wonderful season here in New England, full of crisp apple orchards and gorgeous colors of red, orange and yellow. It is my favorite season for colors - and I especially love wearing fall clothes, and can't wait to wear my Irish wool sweaters I just brought back home from Ireland.

So to celebrate the wonderful colors of fall I've decided to add a line of Czech beads to my shop. Every jewelry artist knows they are an essential beading staple. They are so sparkly, come in a zillion colors, and the shapes are so versatile. From dainty little bell flowers and leaves to fire polished beads, the possibilities are endless. They are wonderful for vintage and contemporary designs, and pair particularly well with lampwork beads. The colors range from bold to neutral and there are always a few styles and colors that will make your next design pop. I really love to dangle some bell flowers from the bottom of a pendant or lariat, giving the piece a lovely movement and just the finishing touch.  Come on by and have a look!
