Colorway #1: Turquoise + copper-rose
The color name of the coppery beads is actually “mudbrick” which (to me) doesn’t do the bead justice. I think its more of a fire-painted copper (which sounds WAY prettier than mudbrick!). Oh, and believe it or not, the photos are actually in focus. What happens is that the reflection of the beads makes them like they are slightly blurry. You can click the photos for a larger view.
Colorway #2: Jet + bronze
Jet+Bronze. Toho’s 49F is pretty ubiquitous (IMHO). Its a great accent bead, and pairs very nicely with a wide variety of colors. While I was making this sample, I had an idea for another design, which I’ll post later on using both these beads, but with the jet as the highlight.Note that the Jet beads in this photo look gray, but they are really black. Working on that.
Colorway #3: Lilac + dragonfly
Pretty beads, and I like the “dragonfly” name!
Colorway #4: Frosted nebula +milky topaz
Here are the images for the 4th colorway. The bracelet in the header is made from this color combo, using Toho’s #9 Takumi beads – these are a little more cylindrical that the #8’s, but the scheme is the same. Below are the samples for this colorway.
