I bought the center red spotted bead quite a while ago.  In fact, I have three of them.  They have an old-world quality and luminosity to them that makes them endearing.  However, it took me a while to try and use them.

The trick was to create something that had a level of sophistication and didn’t head into theatrical or comical.  Polka dots kind of don’t have a serious reputation – they are known for being fun.

I think I created a lovely and unconventional bracelet.  And two more red spotted beads remain…
