Picasso Passion

Admission time.  I'm a sucker for a picasso finish on a bead.

So when I found some delicious little picasso lentils that had swirls of turquoise, cream, caramel, brown, and grey, those babies practically leapt into my shopping basket.

What a lousy photograph! Trust me, the beads are far more fabulous than this.
Just think of this as the bead's drivers licence photo - those are always a little wonky.

And who am I to argue with the beads?  They are luminescent and light, and just brought a smile to my face.

When it came time to introduce them to their beady friends, I decided to play up the turquoise and let them all shine in a fairly simple right angle weave design.

The necklace curves nicely around the neck, and falls right inside the collar of a blouse.

Sometimes the beads just tell you what the design needs to be. This was one of those, and it made me very happy.  I hope you like it, too!

I LOVE this look! what a fantastic idea to use lentils in a RAW weave ... this is a wonderful pattern!

This is such a lovely blend of weaving styles and beads ~ very pretty! Picassos have grown on me to the point I seek them out now before I even look for the staples I need to stock up on.

This is just lovely - I adore the color choices! I laughed so hard at your description of the first photo ... thanks for the giggle! :)
