Bead Spotlight: Eggs and Ovals

Can you believe that Easter is just around the corner? I haven’t purchased any chocolate eggs or jelly beans yet, but I am definitely looking forward to it. Easter is one of my favorite family holidays. It’s all candy and colors - two things that go perfectly together.

Some of the traditional images and symbols of Easter are incredibly inspiring - baby animals, green grass, flowers, crosses, and of course, eggs. To kick off a week of spring inspirations, I searched for some delicious and delightful egg-shaped beads. Here are some of my favorites:

I love the color palette in these lampwork eggs.

but the pattern definitely has an Easter zing.

for more elegant Easter designs.
