I seem to be in a very colourful mood lately, as far as my beads are concerned, anyway.

These bright Mosaic Canework Beads are inspired by the work of my friend Jo of Muddle House Mosaics. I have blogged about her here before and I just love her work. I have been meaning to make a mosaic cane for a little while, and had envisioned it to be in various shades of soft green, but somehow the vibrant colours were just calling to me to use them instead. I am glad I did now, but will still make that soft green cane as well soon, otherwise I will never get it out of my head.

There are some more pictures of this necklace and another square one made from the same cane on my flickr site - just click on the flickr box on the left if you would like to see.

I have also been making some Berry Beads which I hope to finish tomorrow and will post some pictures then.

Those are gorgeous - reminds me of Mondrian pictures (all those geometrics formed out of colour).
Can't wait to see the berries :)

They do look like mosaics! In fact I have two vases I've covered in bits of colored glass that look just like those, very nice Pippa!

Thank you Nic! Yes I know the Mondrian pictures - I hadn't thought of the similarities, but you are right!

Thank you Kate! I really enjoyed making them.
