Playing with my beads...New SuperDuos

Yesterday I got to try out a bunch of new SuperDuo colors. I chose some of my favorite patterns to make the samples. All of the SuperDuos are from Aria Design Studio on Etsy.

Before I show you the samples, I want to mention that quite often Aria's bead photos are much darker than the beads look in reality. One of the colors that I just got, but didn't use in any of the samples below, turned out to be identical to the color that I blogged about on December 3rd HERE. I made the "Persian Fans Earring" sample with some "Crystal Grey Rainbow" SuperDuos that I had just bought at a local shop. The ones that I got from Aria are called "Bronze Iris Matte" and I had no idea they would turn out to be the same beads. Here is the photo from Aria's shop:

And here is how they look in real life:

I'm actually not disappointed that they are the same color because I love it and will use them for something. Now for the samples...

    1. Hi Sandra. Which sample are you asking about? I've made all of these patterns many times and blogged about them but in other colorways.
