Pretty in Pink I - Retired Red Pink Prism

Another retired bead I've always kept an eye out for has been the retired red pink prism, it has been on my very first wishlist since I started collecting but I hadn't seen any until very recently.  I particularly like dual toned prisms so it was always going to appeal to me.

I've discovered that prisms are a bit like buses, you wait ages for 1 and then 3 come along at once... although I declined No.3 and plumped for No. 2 which had great definition and also went the opposite way to No.1 just for a bit of variety... does this mean it's not a multiple??

Well it seemed like it was a good time to put together a new bracelet!

The colour combination on this bracelet was inspired by seeing one of Anne's red/pink bracelets, this one has already had a lot of wear and is one of the ones that has been kept together... although it has been updated with a little something... but more on that another day!
