Do you remember orange push up pops?
They were my favorite purchase as a kid when the ice cream truck made it's way through the neighborhood - are ice cream trucks still around? Certainly not on Mackinac!
The cool sweetness or orange push ups was what I kept in mind as I worked on my latest beading project, "Orange Sherbet" a coordinating necklace and bracelet.
They were a bit of an experiment: I used just a single beading technique, tubular herringbone, and a single type of bead, seed beads only.
The visual interest comes in the interplay between the differing sizes, colors and finishes of the seed beads themselves - no flashy focal bead needed!
I worked with tight tension, resulting in a tube that will support itself.
What do you think?
