these tightly woven black seed beads resemble those gummi blackberry and raspberry candies, especially the upper left image.
these little lemon lime beads are my favorite of all the bead colors i bought to experiment with. they appear to be bright yellow in the bag. i first stitched this pair with a bright red orange thread and the beads then appeared gold, they were okay but i didn't love them....so i then ripped out the thread and stitched them with an aqua color and the beads now appear to be a soft sort of electric yellow with a hint of green. love them!! the matte surface on the beads makes them feel like sprinkles on a cake.
more to come in the grow. paddle line.....
come see the new collection at the handmade austin women show this weekend.
