4.9.2014 - it came in the mail!!

There's just nothing like a new color to fuel the creative furnace!

I was almost out of a longtime favorite glass color, but one final push to see if I could locate it proved successful! 
I'd placed an order for my old 'friend' - Denim Blue, and decided to try a few other colors.  The box arrived on Tuesday and I've been in glass heaven ever since.  Along with the colors I'd ordered were two additional rods - for 'inspiration'.   This is what became of one of the rods... this set is a mingling of the Czech Republic and China... sort of an odd collaboration, but beautiful nonetheless!


The sets tonight reflect my dabbling in some of the more frequent styles of beads as I get to know the darker shade of Denim...  I especially love the sculptural quality of the Urban Chic tiles... and this set's ability to showcase the beauty of the glass itself - while style takes a quiet back seat.
