Summer Inspiration

As the summer season approaches thoughts of surf, sunshine, gardens and vacations influence my jewelry designs. Shades of turquoise, aqua, pale greens and yellow are some of my favorite summertime colors. These are a few of the gorgeous artisan beads that have inspired me...

What are some of your favorite summertime colors and themes?
Who are your go to artisans for summer themed beads?


  1. Gorgeous beads! I love the aqua colors and the pale greens for spring, and even the new bright colors are catching my eye for summer.

  2. Such a pretty palette! I made my first enameled beads in the class with Barbara Lewis this weekend and I kept gravitating to that blue color. Very pretty! I think that I need to make more beachy themed pieces for summer. And bright pops of color!
    Enjoy the day!

  3. I can't resist turquoise so this collection is perfect for me. I am considering trying turquoise with purple in some of my upcoming projects.

    Since I make my own beads I haven't explored other artisans. In the upcoming fall season though I'm gong to branch out and try some different materials and artists. Another challenge. :)
