I have been working with dies that are painted on etched metal and color coordinating that with one of my glass lampwork beads. I get to paint and do jewelry at the same time, well sort of. Even though I enjoy the gold and silvers of the different metals I also like color, especially with all the flowers I am planting at this time of year. With everything coming to life outside I wanted to add some of that drama and brilliance to my jewelry. I am going to find new ways of adding this color dimension to my jewelry designs and just have fun with it. This is an one of my first designs.
