Blue can be a holiday color, when paired with white, or metallics like silver and gold. But when red, yellow, green and blue are together at the same time, it doesn’t usually give a Christmas vibe - until they’re all lit up and dancing around the branches of an evergreen tree.
For today’s bead wish list, I went on a hunt for some deliciously colorful beads with primary color combinations. They might not be festive, but they are gorgeous!

Wild Night Out Lampwork Bicone Focal
by Burning Scentsations
Today’s necklace design started with another fantastic creation from Burning Scentsations. I’m very fond of tree silhouettes, and as soon as I saw this focal bead, with it’s combination of blue and chartreuse, I had to have it.
I love the weight and texture of a handmade lampwork bead. I wanted to do something really special with this one, without overshadowing it with lots of elaborate beadwork. I hoped to mimic the colors and shapes, while enhancing the slightly aquatic, or oceanic quality of the design.
If you have time to take a closer look at any of the beads in today’s wish list, I highly recommend taking a stroll through Burning Scentsations. The beads are exquisite, and the customer service is extraordinary. Plus, there’s nothing like a one-of-a-kind focal to inspire a wonderful necklace!
