Bead Table Wednesday Genea Beads

It's Bead Table Wednesday!!  Here is what I am doing.  I hope you will stop over to the Flickr Group and see what everyone else is up to. 

I am trying out seed bead colors with some of the beauties sent to me by my BeadSoupParty partner Genea Beads.  Aren't they gorgeous!!! I want to use  dark color beads for the background beading so that her beads show up really well.  Here I have her gorgeous disks coupled with an Iris Green size 6 seed bead.  I really like this combination.  You can see hints in the back of the photo of some tiny delicas that perfectly match some of her bead colors.  Yum!! Yum!!

This combo works but I don't like it as well.  Seems like to many colors competing for attention..
In any case I am diving in despite some trepidations.  Let the journey begin!!!


  1. Totally agree with you over the second color combination. And the glimpse of the delicas looks intriguing!

    P.S. Glad your husband liked the cake:-)

  2. Have fun cooking up something awesome!

  3. You are so smart to start playing around now with colors and sizes for your Bead Soup pieces! I can't wait to see what you end up creating! I recieved so many wonderful components, I'm currently feeling a bit overwhelmed...but I will work through it! :-)

  4. It is always challenging to add color to beads with such bright and bold color. Maybe you could try some matte finish beads. I love the way the enhance the sparkly ones but stay in the background of the design.
    Keep playing you will find the perfect match!!

  5. what fun beads, can't wait to see your reveal!

  6. Thank you all for your enthusiasm and support. I know what you mean about feeling a bit daunted by the challenge. I have made some good progress since I posted this and feel sure I will be ready in time!!
