Rustic beads

I was out looking for materials for my new line of jewelry and came across the prettiest beads. I found some handcrafted brass beads from Africa, each one is irregular in shape. The other beads were made of recycled glass which are also irregular in shape which makes them even more amazing. I was drawn to the colors of amber, aubergine and charcoal grey. I just love how the glass beads were re-made into beads from broken glass. Whatever I make with them will carry the energy of reformation and transformation. I’m so excited to have found them and to make my new pieces of jewelry.
