While my wine stopper beads were too big for their intended purpose, I still love how they came out and am very proud to bring you the next one in this series entitled "Harvest Nears".
This bead has a Carrot Red background, which is an odd lot color (not a regularly produced color) by Vetrofond. It is a rich translucent color that had a terrific swirling grain when worked which makes a very nice background.
Against this warm sunset color, the bright purple grapes really contrast and shine. Lots of leaves and twisting vines add a great texture and interest to the bead.
I hope that you will get a chance to visit my shop tomorrow and take a look at all of the pictures of this focal bead.
