I'm currently doing a series of 'beads with shape' or character. These fossil jasper pillars are stunning. I've tried to have a balance of equal size pillars on either side but the beauty of this piece lies in the bead itself. Each bead has its own 'picture'. Beautiful swirls, swishes and splashes of colour and design. Ranging from a smokey pink to black, I've used these colours in the spacers - brass tone metal spacers and onyx cubes. Towards the back I've used coin shape sandstone beads in a smokey pink. Sandstone beads are also beautiful in their own way because of the quartz bits which pick up light.
