So today! turquoise! - just about the color of the ocean after a night of rain. Started on the crocheted rope for the red one last night.

Have to get an order off to Fire Mountain for some crystal whites in order to do the blue and the black one. Tried to find some silver-lined crystal 8s but they had already begun to tarnish and had black rims. Why can't the manufacturers put a layer of clear glass over the silver to seal it against tarnishing? I love silver lined beads but am boycotting all of them at Fire Mountain. Sigh.
