|Lost My Key Lentil Boro beads, from AtlantisGlassAndBead on Etsy|
Hello ABSers! Today starts a new monthly post from me with color palettes derived from art beads. It's combining two of my very favorite things together, so I've been looking forward to this post for the last two weeks (squee!).
When I started using art beads in my own jewelry, I gravitated almost immediately to borosilicate beads. They were the first art bead that I ever fell in love with, and the colors that swirled in the glass had me absolutely mesmerized from day one.
So, what better way to celebrate a new series about art beads than to share with you a cherished favorite? A significant portion of my boro stash has come from the fabulous husband-and-wife duo of Val and Patti Hernandez of Atlantis Glass and Bead. I flat out love the color combinations they use, and their beads are a little bit of visual inspiration for me.

Love love LOVE Atlantis bead too! I've riffed off lampwork before too, love these palettes, especially the first one. I'm getting intrigued by combining bright red with unexpected colors.
Wauw, such nice colors! Really beautifull! Went to the shops, so nice!
Wow, they all are great, but that first set with the reds just really pops for me. Love the color palettes to go along with them.
My weakness, perfectly formed molten glass pretties... sigh. The last set in particular just takes my breath away. So dark and dramatic!
Brandi, if you run this as a regular feature, I'm either going to need more money for beads or more money for therapy to stop buying beads! ha! These are all just "wanna-gotta-have-gorgeous!"
Wow, what a way to start the day: gorgeous absolutely gorgeous.
Beautiful, beautiful colors :0)
I love how the colors are picked from the photo. Is there a program/website where I can do this with one of my photos? Thank you
