Hardscapes

More new jewelry for The Paper Sparrow for Spring!

I loved these beads when i saw them. They are old recycled glass beads in the softest Spring green color, accented with a dusty purple glass bead...


The colors reminded me of fresh new grass and purple crocuses....You can see the rusty spots in the green beads. I love it....

and the big round shiny beads are a mossy green too. I couldn't get a good photo of them to do them justice, but i made a pair for me too!

Believe it or not, these beads are acrylic!
They shine like glass but are unbreakable and light as a feather. Great for folks who don't like heavy jewelry, especially in their earrings....Lots more to come!
