This first composition is rather fun and funky.

The teal beads look fabulous with the gold-tone beads and bangle.

The blue in these beads radiate with the golden tones.

I’m personally loving the new pink addition to the collection and this sunflower is fantastic.

The Sun Flowerstone is the perfect addition to the Flowerstone collection. These beads make me feel like a flower child with their retro feel.

How beautiful is the dichroic glass in these beautiful Dream Stardust beads?
