Hints of Spring
These three oval beads, with double loops to make as connectors, or part of a link in a chain, are made to look similar, but they're not identical.
Since I hand tint all of them, making them look rustic and ancient and applying the color to each one, they can never be just exactly alike.
But I like that about them. They have small differences, but they are similar enough to use in a related design.
I wanted them to have that patina of age, with the dark blue barnwood color, like they've been out in the weather for a long time, in sun and rain, a natural darkened surface that tells a story.
