From GLAMOUR online: If wild, look-at-me hues aren’t your thing,
worry not: New York Fashion Week’s most esteemed designers have got
your back.(And your front. And your legs. You get the picture).
Spring’s sweet sorbet shades and pastel hues give off a low-key,

The big question – what do you wear with these soft and romantic
pastels? My suggestion – something, anything, with shimmery, shiny
dichroic beads in it. Dichroic beads are lampwork beads that seem to
be lit from within. While they come in a rainbow of colors, I
reccomend sticking to the pale, pale pastel colors.
FYI – most of the dichroic beads I purchase are from two artisans –
Dee Howl Beads from Hawaii…and the very talented Paula Radke (whose
beads/jewelry are seen in many national chain stores).A pair of
dichroic beads are seen in the geometric earrings, shown above.
I use small (sometimes as small as tiny seed beads) dichroic beads as
accent piece in a lot of my jewelry. But I also have a few bracelets
and necklaces that feature larger beads.
