I really love small mixes of leftover beads; they make such great accents when combined with other beads.  These chartreuse and red die were part of a Czech glass  destash I bought. (I’m still waiting for the perfect project for the dogs that were included!) The die inspired the color combination for this necklace I made for Lori Anderson‘s Bead Soup Blog Party last year. 

So when I saw a Czech glass mix of squares and ovals, I bought it knowing it would make its way into a design. I got this fabulous large, lightweight owl from Kim Mayberry Ouellette.  In looking through my beads, I saw this little mix and the colors are perfect! I added a couple small strands of Czech glass rondelles.  

I think the owl and the larger Czech glass beads really complement each other.  

Yay for leftover bead mixes!
