I don’t have a specific project in mind for the beads shown below, but I know I want to create something (earrings seem to be my thing of late!) in a “jungle” colourway. I’ve been influenced by the lush foliage of Kauai where I’ve been vacationing and “mellowing out” for the past two weeks. Leaving the leafless trees and grey skies of the midwest for such tropical splendor has done me a world of good! Sun, sand, and surf…exactly what I needed to lift my spirit and jumpstart my creative juices!
