Humblebeads are getting a little darker for the fall. I have a Victorian inspired poppy bead that I've added to my collection. One of many beads that I have been working on this week.
Here is a bracelet I created as the 'action' shot for this bead. It's created using a simple peyote stitch with 2 different size beads, which causes the band to ruffle around. I ended the last row with these luscious keishe pearls that have been pegged to one of my inspiration board for months, calling out to me. When I finished this bead, I knew the pearls would be the perfect match.
Now if only the temperature outside would match my fall mood. I just keep cranking up the air conditioner, pretending that cool October days are quickly approaching.
The Victorian Poppy Beads are in my Esty shop now.
