Black is my favorite color. Not because I'm glum, but because it's classic, goes with everything and is flattering on everyone. I love to wear black and use it in designs, so to avoid getting into a rut, I try to add splashes of color whenever possible. That's why I like this lampwork bead
, which inspired me to add peridot and light rose to my black and silver mix- something I probably wouldn't have thought to do otherwise.
