You might think that they are related by looking at the name, Ruby Rivers.
They're not even related, but this bead is certainly a star with its bright pink highlights against a charcoal gray background that ebbs with lighter shades of blues and ivories.
The pink worked out so nicely with the darker colors in this bead, I'm so glad I gave it a try. Pink, especially transparent pink, can be a tricky color to get to come out in the appropriate shades. Fortunately this bead, which was going to be a black and white only bead initially, all came together as it should.
There is a lot if depth and organic patterns in this bead that will make for a very intersting piece of jewelry.
Come and visit my Etsy Shop in the morning and see the rest of the pictures for yourself.
Have a great night, Everyone!
