Olive Green Beads and Beady Links

Vintage Olive Beads

How lucky was I to get this vintage necklace made of olive green glass beads. They look just like olives, all the need is the red pimento thing. I got these and a serious stash of other vintage treasures from my friend Kelly on Etsy.

Here’s what I did with them. I made two bracelets. This one in tertiary colors (or at least that is what I am calling them).

Tertiary Colors Chunky Bead Bracelet

And the other – more woody and earthy.

Earthy Bead Bracelet

Both really different and I have enough of these lovely beads for something else.

So, what’s going on in the beautiful bead world? Here’s the news. Plus, Blythe is involved. And you know she can work it!
