I seem to be on a roll with these anonymous blue stone beads! This time, I’m using them as the main bead in a necklace, which is accented with some great shell beads that show the shell’s spiral in the centre. I’m not sure which type of shell they came from, but the way they’re cut is absolutely fantastic. I was completely taken with them when I bought them, but this is the first time I’ve actually used them.
Sometimes I have beads in my stash for so long that I no longer remember where I bought them. These white beads are one of those items. They’re glass, and in a funky shape that looks a bit like they’re random chips when they are strung together. The strand had three sizes of these beads, so I strung them so they graduate from smallest in the back to largest in the front of the necklace. I paired them with some 6mm blue stones that I can’t identify. Whatever they are, they have a nice, organic look to them and go well with the white chip-style beads.
