rex ray 1957-2015 / elizabethcraneswartz.commore snow days means more internet trolling and I love this piece by rex ray. heavy on the blues with shocks of pink and orange in interesting patterns. I've been trying for a long time now to get the right shade of turquoise and it's really hard - it's too bright, too chalky, too flat, too dark. I'm thinking mr. ray had the right idea with this strié effect but I imagine it'd be pretty labor intensive to create this on beads. even my 2 inch discs would take awhile.
