Symbols of Love ~~ New Colors

Here are a couple of the new colors in my Symbols of Love Series. I call the green one, Heart of the Forest. It has an emerald green inclusion and I thought the heart shaped leaf bail fit nicely.

The next one I call True Blue Heart. This is a rich, deep blue, with a few more dichroic inclusions. I wire wrapped this and added complimentary colored Swarovski crystals.

Another shade of blue, this one a little more subtle, called Steadfast Heart.

And this is a lovely shade of lavender. One of the new shades from Bullseye Glass this year. It's very rich looking and the picture just doesn't do it justice. I called this one, Heart's Desire.

All of these went to Second Street Art Market today. I hope they will be well received as I enjoy making them.

My plan is to add more colors, depending on the response to these. In the meantime, I will continue to work with the original red/pink glass as I think those hearts are wonderful.

I'd love to know your thoughts on the new colors... Do you like them? Stick with the originals? I appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

Kathleen, I don't think you should choose between 'original' and 'new' colors, do 'em all! People's color preferences are so personal, I'd think you'd do best with a variety.

Thanks Deborah! I'm glad you like the variety of colors. I do too.
