I Heart Macro 05062012

I Heart Macro with bead love!

I bought some of Ellen Dooley's beautiful lampwork beads and they arrived yesterday.

This gorgeous set is called Chaco Canyon Primativos.  It makes me think of a canyon landscape under a bright blue sky.

I adore the colors and texture of this bead!

I love this set featuring a ring disc in verdant jade with raku and turquoise highlights.

When I purchased this set, I had a design idea in mind, but the ring would lay flat.  Since they arrived, I see that my idea will hide the beautiful colors in the ring, so I will have to rethink my design.

I'm joining Lori Plyler of Studio Waterstone for "I Heart Macro" slash "I Heart Close Ups: Up Close Photography for Macro Makers and the Camerologically Challenged".
