Glass Bead of the Day - Tuesday 12/28/2010

What are YOU looking for in a bead?

For me it's shape, color, texture and sparkle! And I love surprising elements, that I didn't expect. As for example in this gorgeous bead which I selected for today's lampwork bead of the day: Paisley Twist, a beautiful focal bead made by my fellow Fire Diva Lara Lutrick.

I just adore the beautiful color shifts in this bead. Soft feminine color with a bit of fire and passion! And I'm in love with how Lara used the Gold Aventurine stringer and the beautiful murrini at the bottom of the bead to include a twist, that not only adds texture, but also twists the murrini into a perfect little paisley.

You can find this gorgeous bead and many more of Lara's glassy creations in her Etsy shop.

I would love to take the opportunity to wish you & your family already now a Happy New Year. See you back next Tuesday :)
