Snazzy Jazzy Color

Took some of the pearls and wire rosary wrapped some, and used beading wire and crimp beads on some.

Really like costume pearls, learning how to get the colors and how to match the dyed pearls to the beads. Nice to be able to have a color palette to use with both.

The far right costume pearls were bright white and have a slight aged tint to them, like using strong tea to tint papers and age them.

The middle pearls are raspberry color, not all are the exact color but they have a nice variation in the color, more natural and aged looking.

The two left are large size (8 mm) gray costume pearls and the varying shades show well on those, nice neutral steel gray color and some with a slight gray-green hint to them.
