Like most of you at this time of year, I’ve been shopping for holiday gifts to give.  While perusing various shops, I happened upon this tempting collection.  I wasn’t really looking for more beads, but this Moroccan Picasso mix of faceted roller, spaghetti, and Czech glass beads was just begging to be added to my stash!  The vibrant colors first caught my eye – I could hardly believe the depth they project considering their matte finish!  I’ve made many pieces that have an ancient look and these beads will be the perfect addition to future pieces I create in that style. I can hardly wait to start making more pieces to add to my “Antiquities” collection!
