Quirky and very bright yellow indeed, these art glass beads by English beadmaker Emma Ralph were a challenge that Lynn just couldn't resist. Teamed with beaded beads, peyote spirals, and organic accent beads, they eventually arranged themselves into a fun and funky neck piece in Caribbean colors: banana, mango, lime, and coffee. Perfect for a summer beach party!
