I know there are a lot of you out there that find this a relaxing and enjoyable hobby. Please feel free to copy these designs, or modify them to work with your style, Or just enjoy looking!

Turqoise Glass and Candy Jade Necklace by Judi Suni Hall at Gingezel
I have always been partial to bead necklaces that are all in a color family, the attraction being the subtle interplay of shapes and shades. The blue, blue green, and violet one above is on a limited edition scarf I made ages ago.

I don't know about you, but although I try to be organized with little bins of beads, it doesn't last long. What I really like to do it create a color family or collection in a large bin and dump related beads from suppliers all over the world in there. For inspiration - just stir them around.
