I've been doing a lot of walking with the dog lately..the weather has been beautiful.
Along the way I've noticed the amazing dried seed pods still hanging onto the bare branches.. nature is the best designer..
With that inspiration,I've been making some Pod beads but didn't want them to be all neutrally and browns at the time..I'm not a "brights" person generally..but guess after all the festive decorations of the Holidays, I still needed some cheery colors..
Those bigger beads with the 2-3 colors have a larger opening at the bottom edge, a bit bell like..but quickly return to the normal thread channel..the idea was to use them as a pendant and cluster a bunch of tiny, dangling beads at that bottom opening. Funny though, my favorite bead might be that little tan shinoish one with the irregular marks in the lower right corner..guess I will be glazing some pods in neutrals after all..
