Kidney Beans

Another adventure in “Beans can be Beautiful” . . .

Kidney beans are such a beautiful shade of reddish-brown and the red jasper nuggets matched perfectly. The vintage Tibetan temple beads were a wonderful foil.

Back to drilling!

The hard part was drilling the holes in the kidney beans — they’re tiny! Not all of the beans passed the test with the hole landing in the middle of the bean.

Limitations of photography

It’s almost impossible (at least for me) to capture the rich colors of these beans and beads — believe me, they’re awesome!
