Another part of the problem is that I only have a couple of RED rods left and I haven't placed another glass order yet since I'm working to get taxes prepared and applications to art festivals done.
However, I cannot allow my low reserves of RED to allow the colors of beads in my shop slip too far into the cool color scale. So, may I present to you "Rubies Are Red"?
This HOT little focal sports lots of this elusive color and just shines in the light. Sure to FIRE your imagination, the deep, transparent RED dots encompass this focal bead. It reminds me a bit of a jewel encrusted piece of jewelry such as a Faberge' Egg.
Then, of course, there are those lovely shoes of Dorothy's in "The Wizard Of Oz" which also have a bit of RED on them too.
Well, whatever this bead reminds me of, really doesn't matter. The only question is, "What does this bead remind you of?"
It'll be in my Etsy shop in the morning. Please come a take a look and see more pictures of this little gem.
