So I wanted to do a gradient; hadn’t done one in a while. 🙂
The edge beads are pink mist, not straight silver; I thought that might go better with maple-style colors, given their leaves go from green to pinkish-purple, depending on species and time of year.
Hmm. The cranberry beads at the top came out a bit more straight-red in this photograph (as opposed to purplish red) than they looked to the eye. Might have needed stronger light to bring out the full color; it ended up being a hit-and-miss day for full sunlight.
