brightly colored pretties

It's my natural inclination to work with subtle colors but some people likes 'em bright! I'm hoping my customers will go for red this year because I bought about 25 strands of coral at the bead show. I hadn't planned to buy so much - just couldn't help myself! (But, of course, that's the way it is with everything I buy at the bead show).

Funny thing about making jewelry, for me anyway, is that I make it and then put it in a drawer and don't even look at it again until it's time to pack it up to sell, and that's when I suddenly feel so attached to it that I don't want to let any of it go!!
I wonder if that happens to other people - I'm sure it must.

I'm more of a natural-colored necklace wearer myself, but these look incredible! Just the thing to accent a black top and jeans.

I'm usually a natural-colored wearer too but have suddenly wanted to put on bright jewelry to go with simple clothes. These pieces of yours look beautiful!!
