Beads, Beads and more Beads

Today I felt like beading, and so I decided to take a ride to the Bead Cache, in Mansfield, MA. This is a wonderful little bead store with a huge assortment of lovely beads. The gals that work there are so helpful. The store also has 3 ring binders with all kinds of free bead patterns. If you are ever in that area stop in to their store. http://www.beadcache.com/

Anyway, after browsing for the longest time; I bought several strands of beads, sterling spacers, and ear wires. Late this afternoon as I was taking my beads out of the bag I decided that I would work on a few things.
So, here is what I made. The scans aren't great as it was already dusk outside when I took the photos. I may try retaking the photo's tomorrow. The colors are so much prettier than the scans. I chose the blue beads, because they reminded me of the ocean, and so I couldn't resist buying those.

Unfortunately the scan looks distorted and the gorgeous colors just don't show up. I wish I knew why the scans seem to upload to my blog in a distorted form. Anyone else have that problem? Any clue's to why this is happening?
 Click on the distorted dichoric blue bracelet photo below,  and then it won't look distorted.

I have a spiral beaded bracelet that I started, but when using seed beads and the light dims I have a hard time seeing what I am doing in the fading light. So, that bracelet will have to wait for another day.
