Now, I had planned on waiting until I had created something amazing with these beads I bought recently from Happyskull Lampwork:
I am recently on a PURPLE slant (more about that in a future post), so I have settled for admiring my BLUES where they sit beside my computer/work area. They are polite and well-behaved companions. However, since bead creator extraordinaire Cherie Ranfranz happens to be on my radar, I noticed she just listed more wonderful orphan bead sets in a gorgeous array of colours.
I have found orphans give my creativity a boost. Each individual bead tells its own story. If you haven't worked with orphans, give them a try. And Cherie, keep those wonderful beads coming!
