Color and Flower Inspired Works!

In my last blog entry, I discussed how colors and flowers frequently inspired my jewelry and bead making. I invited feedback from my readers, and I'm thrilled to have some responses to share!  (Keep them coming!)



Shirley Jones Moore makes intriguing components from seed beads!   She mentioned in her comments from the last post that she was very inspired by color.

There is lots more to see, 
including this red/white Peppermint Twister pair!
Great color and delightful photography!



From Natalie Pappas, creator of fabulously unique pottery beads, we have this lovely bead inspired by flowers!

Thanks for the shout out dear! I do love all the fresh springtime color in this post. It always amazes me how a color can change your mood, from happy to intense, moody to calm. These are definitely happy colors!
