Apparently if your Acer monitor power switch flashes blue and orange, that’s it politely warning you it’s about to go poof. Lucky me, I suspected as much and just got a new monitor this afternoon. Still getting used to it….
The center pink beads are silk light pink; when I look at them in the light, the bunnies say, “Senbonzakura!”
…But I wasn’t quite up to designing Byakuya earrings at that point. And I wanted to see how the silk pink beads handled. The eye-catching silk shine is achieved by tiny, tiny grooves on the outside of the beads, meaning they’re not polished smooth on the edges as most Delica beads are. A little more like handling tiny bugle beads with a Delica-sized hole.
So I decided to put them together with some silver-lined light pink and light lavender, and some pearl-white, and see how it came out.
The silver-lined light pink actually seems a bit gold in contrast to the other colors. Is that a good thing?
