How to Work with Metallic Iris Beads 
by Margie Deeb

I'm in the process of writing my 5th book, The Beader's Guide to Jewelry Design. Because I want to make it invaluable, I've been soliciting feedback from my newsletter subscriber list and Facebook. I asked about the challenges you face as a jewelry designer in several arenas: color, composition, style, durability, wearability, and more.

Rosanne Andreas responded "...working with iris/metal beads is a color challenge." Since the topic of last month's Margie's Muse column was "Escape the Dark Metallic Iris Trap," I'd like to explore some of the most aesthetic approach to incorporating metallic iris beads in jewelry.
