Sparkling Olive Green, Copper Charms and Swarovski Copper Crystal Beads

- by Sparkle Plenty Fine Beaded Jewellery

This week's theme: Strung Together

Seed Beads are uniformly shaped, spheroidal beads ranging in size from under a millimetre to several millimetres. "Seed Bead" is a generic term for any small bead. Usually rounded in shape, seed beads are most commonly used for loom and off-loom bead weaving. They may be used for simple stringing, or as spacers between other beads in jewelry. Larger seed beads are used in various fiber crafts for embellishment, or crochet with fiber or wire. - Wikipedia

Sometimes simply strung, other times elaborately woven - the beauty and the versatility of seed beads means they find their way into many types of creative expression. This week, EBSQ's Art Of The Day will focus on seed beads and just a few of the ways they can be used to create unique and beautiful personal accessories.

Like sunlight filtering through the leaves of an oak tree on a hot summer's day, the olive green seed and copper crystal beads shimmer and twinkle.

The sparklier beads are offset with matte black and sand-coloured seed beads, and the slightly-longer-than-five-foot necklace ends with copper flower and leaf charms at either end.

This ultra-versatile lariat can be worn in a variety of ways; in many of them, the charms will chime together musically.
