Glass Bead of the Day - Tuesday 1/25/2011

As so often, I had a hard time to decide which bead to select for today's lampwork bead of the day. So much talent, so many beautiful beads! But I'm always on the lookout for beads that "talk" to me, somehow surprise me, touch me or bring back certain memories.

And that's exactly what happened when I saw this fabulous Floral Focal bead by Judith Johnston of Judith Beads.

I think this bead is absolutely gorgeous. Just check out the dainty bubble dot blossoms and the sparkling cubic zirconias in the center of each flower. So beautiful.

Did I talk about the lovely teal color yet? I love, love, love this color. And it brings back treasured teenager memories to me - teal was for a long time my favorite color, and everything had to be teal ... t-shirts, schoolbags, hair bands, even my bedroom walls! LOL.

Don't forget to check out Judith's Etsy shop for this flower bead and other gorgeous focals and bead sets.
