I've never been to Mardi Gras myself but it sure looks like a lot of fun. I even had to look information about it up on the web to see why some lampwork beads I purchased made me think - Mardi Gras! Turns out it's the colors in them that remind me of Mardi Gras - purple, green and hints of gold. Here are some of those gorgeous beads by Daniel Echeverry in my Mardi Gras bracelet. The depth of color in these lampwork beads is just amazing!
I added wonderful sterling silver Mardi Gras themed charms. A wonderful large New Orleans charm hangs next to the ornate toggle clasp. I love the way this turned out!
