For August, we are looking for handmade jewelry components in summery green colors!

Here is what some of our beady friends have to show off this week:

I love green -- next to purple it's my favourite colour! A few green and handmade favourites are:

coloured etched copper compoonents:

hand-dyed mixed threads (in love with such bundles at the moment, even thinking of doing a proper challenge about them):

Humblebeads cabs:

radiant mind lampwork:

ok, more turquoise than green -- but they glow in the dark! (I'm childish, I love glow-in-the-dark beads)

HavanBeads floral headpins (the leaves and centres are green):

Swedish lampwork by Babs Beads:

and I must add a dragon:

Ok, this isn't handmade (rather sea made) and barely green, but it's cool and would look great together with handmade beads/components:
