Spring and Blue Moon Beads

It's not quite Spring here, but it's starting to feel a little like it.  The weather's been chilly with clear skies, so afternoon school pick-up has been in lovely sunshine and it's not been hard to imagine that warm days are just around the corner.  Get ready for a cold snap now I've said that!!!

Also helping with the Spring mood I've had a wonderful new box of DT goodies arrive from Blue Moon Beads this week, full of fresh bright colours  While I'm playing and creating with it all I chose some lovely metal bead cones to play with.  They have a little flower motive pressed into them so there's a nod to spring there too.

The beads are from the Blue Sky Champagne bead mix tin and the faceted ones are from a JoAnn's Black/Gray bead strand.  To wire everything together and attach the pieces to the chain I've used decorative silver tone headpins.

Perhaps some earrings needed to match?

Actually, I made these before I created the necklace, whilst I was experimenting to see which beads fitted best into the cones.

Itching to get my hands on the rest now, I'm in bead heaven.
