Sometimes you just get lucky to find something rare and special. At least I think these glass chili-peppers are because I never saw them before. I found them in a little shop in a plastic crate with all kinds of stuff.

Greetings from Karin.

those are so cute, and I love your design. It really incorporates the chili peppers to their best advantage.

Happy Beading!!

They're cute!  I don't recall seeing those, either.  Carrots, yes, but not peppers.  The necklace is adorable, whimsical.  It made me smile the minute I saw it.  You should model it, Karin!

Thanks for your comments everybody.

@Caroline: don't you love the bright red of the peppers? Like Val I love red but red beads are rare. It's a difficult color. Red seadbeeds loose their color very easily. But with glass there's no problem apparently.

@Val: what do you mean, model it?

Greetings from Karin.

Wow!, This is just Awesome. I love it! I searched for a long time to find a strand or Ristra of these little glass beauties. I found two strands in a LBS. haven't seen them since.  They hang in my living room.

(were close to Hatch,NM I hear its the 'Chili Pepper Capital of the world".)

Love the chili peppers! and your design!  My husband loves chili peppers (eating & Christmas lights Big Smile).  Are there enough left to make earrings or a bracelet?  Could they be used as charms?  Thanks for sharing.

This is fabulous!  I've seen chili pepper beads, but they've always been great big thinks.  I love the way you've used them.
