I love purple. I never use the whole batch of beads immediately, but this was the closest I’ve got to it. I had a string of these purple dyed agate beads, perfect for earrings. This is just one of the pairs, but I’ve made about six or seven pairs (some of which I often wear). The wire is silver plated nickel-free one, and the small beads are natural howlite. Available on Etsy.
I have these beautiful fluorite drop-shaped beads, but I’m always afraid that they will crack while I wrap them. I don’t know why, because it happens with agate rather than fluorite. This one has beautiful purple and green stripes. I used amethyst beads and non-tarnish silver plated wire, which in this case looks ok. Available on Etsy.
I’m stocking up for the Valentine’s Day. I really have a lot of these heart-shaped 2cm beads (sometimes 3cm, which are better) so I decided to use them finally and make some Valentine pendants. First batch: three regular (well, relatively; the spotted one looks like a cow dressed up as a flower) and three goth style. All available in my Etsy shop in gothic and lampwork sections.
