Roses On The Brain

Thanks for hanging in there while I've been getting over my cold.  I'm doing much better tonight, and have actually gotten the couple of bead sets that I made on Sunday cleaned up and photographed.
I must have roses on the brain from making all of those sets last week which is why my latest set to come to my Etsy shop is entitled "Rose Leaves".

I named this set because the deep rich color the purple base and spacer beads that lightens out to the rich emerald green around the edges of the leaves remind me of the coloration of some of my Grandmother's rose bushes when I was growing up.

Additionally, the shape of the leaves is also reminiscent to the rose leaves on these bushes.  Rather than wrack my brain to come up with another name that just wouldn't suit them as well, I went with my first impression of the set which is usually the right one.

The purple color used as the base color for this set is a deep wine color that is very rich, but hard to capture in a picture.  Five leaves are included in this set along with eight spacers.

As usual, I'll be adding this set to my shop in the morning, so I hope you'll stop by and check it out with the additional pictures and information on the set.

Have a great night!
