We went to a cute little bead shop today on Ocracoke Island so that I could get beads for my next Silken Straw Scarf. The color of the yarn is an incredibly intense teal (although this picture shows it as cobalt blue), and I wanted something that would both show up and enhance the yarn. There weren’t 120 of any single bead, so I opted for two different teal beads. The small round one has a cool fused glass center, and the other is sort of striped, as you can see. I totally loved them both. I think they’ll be just right for the yarn.
