For a change it was a bright sunny day recently so I decided to do some experimenting. I love the large glass beads that look almost like mini-earths and almost equally I love the little square turquoise beads that Lynn gave me in her cast offs. A perfect marriage.
I think the long beads at either side help to set off the square beads - they really deserve to stand out. And the light green seed beads and accent pearls bring out the green in the large turquoise glass beads.
Oh how I love these beads. You can see why I keep having to buy them, can't you?
Most of the photos I tried that day were not to my satisfaction but there's always good learning in experimenting. None of the photos I intended for these lovely beads worked out, but an accidental shot reveals better results with contrasting colour and a more textured background.
Notes for next time as I examine everything around the house as potential backdrops.
More random blue/green beads. They look kind of good mix and match, but I'm not in love.
