I'm Loving Coral This Week






I never wear red and it's never been one of my favorite colors. But a couple of folks on the forums I belong to were destashing some red coral beads and they all of a sudden appealed to me. So I played with these beads all last weekend. With the exception of the first pair of earrings, these are all done with copper wire. I would love to pair some with silver in a necklace but I find myself being stingy with my silver wire lately. I'll have to get over that-it's not going down.

  6. I love the colour!! It goes so beautifully with the copper. I find myself testing all my designs in copper first now, to save silver, and falling in love with the copper piece. : )
