Yellow Mellow Treasury

I've been watching the treasuries since yesterday... and was unable to stay up till 2 am waiting for them to open up last night... but managed to get one this afternoon!!! :-)

I love yellow, but for some reason can't seem to use it as a colour in my own work.... the closest I've come to it is when I made my Midsummer Nights Dream necklace and used yellow freshwater pearls and light yellow Swarovski  crystals... but that is as far as I have been able to include this gorgeous happy colour in anything I made :-) a small step, but a huge effort!!! I don't know the why and how, but it is what it is! :-) a phobia???? :-) I hope not, wouldn't like to be scared of any colour!!! :-)

so as I'm yellow-deficient I thought I would create a yellow treasury, in the hope that I can finally use some of my gorgeous yellow beads I've been stocking up in the hope that if I owned them, saw them on a regular basis, they would eventually speak to me and I would be able to use them!!! :-) otherwise, anyone interested in some yellow beads? ;-)

Happy beading and wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ahead!!!


  1. I just wanted to tell you that your work has really inspired me so much in my own beading work.
    You do beautiful work!

  2. Okay, here's a challenge for you, dearest Triz: Get yourself a beautiful amethyst or ametrine (amethyst and citrine in one stone) focal bead and make yourself use pale yellow sead beads and some citrine or yellow calcite chips in your embroidery. You will not be disappointed. I promise!

  3. Funny, I have a similar fear of yellow in my own work, even though I love it in others--I've only ever ended up using it when prompted by customer request.

    carol's idea sounds like a good one, btw--i bet it would turn out beautifully!

  4. Lovely piece Triz...the colors give it such a delicate feel!!!

    Interesting thing though...I rarely ever use yellow when I make pieces either...not sure why, but I do like Carol Dean's idea sounds very unique...but then I'm a huge fan of amethyst...


  5. Triz your work never ceases to amaze me! I love the solid weave on the one side and the loose strands on the other. Different yet balanced. Just beautiful!
