Beadsaholic brings a review of Black Raven Beads Sounds of Spring Collection.
Today is the debut of the latest collection from Black Raven Beads, Sounds of Spring. In this release there is a new glass bead, ten new silver beads, two stoppers and one lock, all that sings spring is coming!
‘Sounds of Spring – Where flowers bloom, so does hope. Have you “slept in”, and are you awakening after that long winter sleep? The crocuses curiously stick their heads out of the ground. Birds start looking to make a nest. Spring is approaching! Spring stands for awakening, lightness, bloom and growth. When spring arrives, it’s time for our new ideas to germinate, come out and be put into motion, starting with a clean slate. The energy is young and fresh and outwardly focused. In short, spring is the time to start something new and carry out the plans formed in your head. The birds and frogs say loud and clear that the season is changing. Enjoy the sounds of spring!’ ~ Black Raven Beads
