Somethings just go together and Vintaj brass findings and art beads are definitely a match made in heaven.  The Vintaj design team has released their Spring 2010 inspirations for jewelry and quite a few art beads are being featured this season.  Here are a few of my favorite picks.

That clay flower is AMAZING!!! It looks like heat patinated copper! Or leather. The Vintaj findings are perfect with it, as is the tiger lily-flavored bead. Really lovely. The coin is a nice touch.

Beautiful designs! I just love Vintaj, and luckily it is still new in my area so not as saturated as other places may be.

All the art beads are just lovely! I've always loved lampwork, though it is getting too expensive for me now. And those little birds from Heather are just so sweet!

I agree - the clay flower is stunning. It does look like leather. The finish is unreal.
