hieroglyph beads I purchased in August. The color is so intense, it’s hard to find just the right complements and contrasts for it.
I recently picked up some new turquoise blue druks, and turquoise green seed beads, which I thought would provide a nice background for one of these curious orange beads. As I went through my bead stash, building the palette, I collected all kinds of blues and greens. The different shades together have a sort of aquatic, boggy feel to them - like papyrus reeds along a river bank.
With so many different colors and shapes, I decided to keep things simple and use them in a three strand bracelet, with the hieroglyph bead front and center. I love the way the orange works with the hints of turquoise, and the darker emerald and cobalt beads really highlight the metallic green hieroglyphs.
