Indigo Indulgence

As I didn't post any pics of jewellery in my posting of this morning, thought I'd show you a few new things, hot off the press.

All these feature beads by Denise Karan of Indigo Lily. I'm just hooked on Denise's beads at the moment!

First up are some really pretty beads that I've had for a little while. I didn't want the jewellery to turn out too 'girly' so even though I've used more pink, in the form of sea glass, I think picking up the green from Denise's beads has steered it away from the Barbie look. The green is Ruby Fuschite, which also has areas of a gorgeous dark pink which, hopefully, holds the whole thing together.

Then, back to my newest favouritest finding, the add a bead pendant. These beads made me think of wintry Yorkshire moors (although, come to think of it, I've never been on the Yorkshire moors in the winter, so I suppose this is what I think they'd look like!).

And although I've never been swimming in the Caribbean - and I even when I do swim, I don't do underwater... these colours are what I imagine you'd see.

And I love the contrast of the greens in this set.

Right, better get back to it!

More soon...

Lesley, I've only just stumbled upon your blog and wow!....it's an Indigo Lily Lampwork beadfest :) Thank you Lesley, not only for choosing my beads but for making them much more than they are. You're a very talented lady (and the Fun Trivia Queen!)

Lovely pieces Lesley. In particular I love the Mystic Moorland set.

Some very attractive pieces, particularly the ones using lampwork

The lampwork pieces are really classy - and I love what you've done with Denise's beads, that combination of colours goes so well together, and definitely not too girly!
