This Was The Crayola Color I'd Always Wear Down The Quickest


If your heart did a little extra flutter when you saw this shade of blue in these beads, you know why it's a good thing there wasn't anyone between me and the bead strand when I found them.

I mean, all's fair in love and the pursuit of transparent cobalt blue beads.

Sadly, my photographic skills do not do justice to these beauties.  Oooh, sigh....

This was my favorite color for the first 30 years of my life so I understand your passion.

I love cobalt blue. It looks great with just about everything and makes every bead with it shine.

Ohhh, pretty! Cobalt is one of my absolute favorite seed beads colors, so I can understand why you love these beads so much!

I always wore the magenta crayon down first. And then red and purple because I'd combine them to make, yes, more magenta. :)

That is one beauty of a color! Hot and cool at the same time. And I love the way the light plays through them. They are so pretty I'd be tempted simply to place them in a bowl near my work space as ornament!

As for my crayon box, I always wore the forest green down first. :). I lived in the city and drew pages and pages of forests.
