Sparkly beads

I have several jars of beads sorted out for needlework, and they are generally more fun to admire for their sparkle and shine than to use - stringing them on a needle one at a time. Since I love the effect of beading on embroidery I endure it as patiently as possible, and have grown to love the process for the resulting sparkly effect. These beads were dark purple, pretty close to the color I got in my 20 minute sketch. Watercolor and water soluble pencil, 5 1/2" x 8".
