I just love my mardi gras bead, I think it is possibly my most favorite glass ever, and its surprisingly versatile. I picked up on the yellow and turquoise colours in it and created what I think is a lovely spring like bracelet to wear.

This is a very lovely colour combi.
The turquoise colour make the ambers glow and vice verse.
The best I've seen with mardi gras! Very Happy

I love how mardi gras can look more subdued when I place it with the earthier colours, but then it can look so bold and bright when settled in with louder colours. Issey is another bead like that, they take on different personalities depending on the occasion

This is a gorgeous bracelet and Mardi Gras a much neglected and underrated bead! I love mine too as I got it from my hubby and it's his favourite bead!

I LOVE blue-orange(yellow/tan/cream) colour combinations. Really, I'm a fiend. My tutor commented on it last year. Could I try using other colours? Mmm.

Tui I am absolutely loving this bracelet! I'd wear it in a flash. =) (Whhhhy do I not have money for more beeeeads?)

Gorgeous combo, it took me a while before I discovered the mardigrass, but now I own two and use them a lot. It is such a great colourful bead!
