They are the coolest round bead with a "ribbed" exterior in clear glass. In the middle is a blend of beautiful purples and blues with a hint of maroon... maybe... or maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me. :o) Either way, they are beautiful!
So they were the inspiration for this necklace. I love swirls & curls (which is why wire jewelry originally caught my attention when I was toying with the idea of where to go next in Dawn's Great Life Adventure). So I carried the swirly pattern through creating a chain of seed beads in a swirl pattern. The necklace turned out really colorful, and tons of fun.
