This size is also very good for earrings, so I try to have a tray full of them in many different colors. When I am working on making earrings for a show, I like to have lots of choices! Since I mostly use them in pairs, and people mostly buy them in pairs, I end up with lots of orphans. One of these days I will have to design a necklace with them!

I haven't made these bracelets for a few years, but I am inspired again! The beads are in color ranges, and this one is amber and green. (I also make a purple and blue set.) After I have a set of my beads, I go through my stash of stones, pearls, silver, crystals and anything else I have that looks like the color and size will work. That can take a while, since I have a considerable stash. A friend told me when I buy more stones, pearls, etc, I am assembling my palette, and I like that thought. Any excuse for more!
