Turquoise Coyote Road Trip
Last week we took a trip to Turquoise Coyote. I couldn't resist the sparkle of the crystals. I bought Rose Montes in Vitrail medium and Blue Zircon. The 4mm Jet AB 2x were screaming pick me. Followed by 3mm padparadscha and amethyst saying don't forget us. I found some very cool earthy pink/brown stick pearls. I have plans to knot a necklace to wear on Bead Cruise 2010. We stopped and had a great Mexican lunch. Notice how the colors of the crystals I bought match the color scheme of the restaurant? That wasn't planned. Funny how that works out. The marcasite rondells were a must for this crocheted bracelet. The stones are 6mm faceted Amethyst stones. The one thing I discovered is I am in need of a seed bead fix. It's been a couple of years since I have gone to a major bead show. I need to see and touch all the different colors and shapes of those tiny pieces of glass lined up in tubes and laid out in hanks. Those are the type of beads that feed my creative muse.
