New Silver Cored Beads

I have a couple new silver cored beads listed in my Etsy shop today:KA356 Silver Cored BeadOrganic Ivory and Aura Silver Cored BeadThe first bead is made with Double Helix odd lot KA-356 and encased with Aether clear. It looks like a sunrise to me. I love the colors and the soft look. KA-356 is translucent so the bead has an inner glow from light reflecting off the silver core.
The second bead is Ivory with Aurae scrolls. It's a nice small bracelet bead, with lots of crackled Ivory detail.

I have 10 more big-holed beads sitting on my bench waiting to be cored. It's been a while since I've listed any new silver cored beads... that's because my Mom bought the silver Pandora bracelet I have been using as a prop in my photos. She asked me how much the bracelet cost, and I thought she meant how much I paid for it. When I told her the price, she wrote me a check for the bracelet. I froze for a second, suddenly realizing that she was buying my photo prop which I need to photograph my silver cored beads. But I couldn't turn away Mom, right? Mom should have what she wants! And if it inconveniences me, well, I think I've inconvenienced her a few times with things a little more dire, starting with birth. So, I've been saving my pennies for a new silver Pandora bracelet, which has now arrived, and is now pictured in my new silver cored bead photos. Whew! And Mom LOVES her bracelet, and now I get to make her a bunch of beads for it!

Woo hoo for new beads and a happy Mom! Love that first one with the odd lot of DH. I was expecting you to say it was Cleo. And the crackling of the ivory, oh the crackling. Gorgeousness!

The is the most wonderful bead I every saw. It is very beautiful. I just wish that it is not that expensive. I want to have beads like that.

These beads are gorgeous Karolen. The cracked Ivory detail in the second bead is fantastic.

Oh, I love love love the KA 356 bead. Stunning!
KA 357 and it's sister glass KA 357 are my all time favorite DH silver glass colors.
I do appreciate that DH took now Kalypso into their production line. But honestly, it's not the same. I still prefer my KA 356. And I'm so sad that I have only 2 rods left :(
