It all Started with a Bead...

This Bead in fact
Amber with greenish yellow, black and white dots.
This is not a pretty bead in my opinion. 
So I bought more not so pretty beads
to see if they would go with it.
Amber with grey bumpy dots. 
Another serious case of "What were you Thinkin'!"
I went to a "new to me".. bead store this Saturday.
Spent hours getting lost in all the variety of beads.
Places like that make my head swirl with ideas.
 I found these golden yellow wide leaves
I also picked up these two styles of black lampwork beads. 
One with flowers and one with circles and dots.
Using these with what I had in my stash. I made this toggle bracelet.
 After I was done I said to myself this reminds me of a Bumble bee.
I'll make another using these colors.
So with some of the left over lampwork beads, my bead stash
and bee charms I have.
I made this bracelet.
 The round pewter beads reminded me of a round beehive.
So I just had to use those.
And now I have a this Honey Bee bracelet.
I might have never worked with this color combination,
if it hadn't been for that one bead.
Honey Bee bracelet is now for sale in my blog shop.
