Mini Mo' June 2012 - Poppy Red and Mint Julep

The morning walk to nursery with my daughter inspired my first June colourway, Poppy Red. I saw beautiful dancing blood red poppies every morning with their delicate paper thin petals. The Poppy Red Mini Mo’ glasswork was made with Lauscha Red, Reichenbach Lipstick and Vetrofond Light Red 428 with classic silvered Hades shards
This first juicy set is made with Tangerine Dark Yellow Special 591412-T, dots of Effetre Apricot and Poppy red spiral murrini - this Mini Mo' contains a mix of starburst and spirals.
Here is s set of sculptural florals made with Poppy red flat cane over CiM Creamsicle.
Lastly I want to show you a fun set of beads showing the Poppy Red ribbon cane under encasement (Effetre 006)
Thinking of summer and summertime drinks and also being partial to mint I couldn't help but get inspired by the theme Mint Julep. Perhaps it is not too much of a surprise that working with vibrant Poppy reds had me then reaching for these teals and fabulously cool greens next as they would be practically directly opposite on a colour wheel.

My Mint Julep Mini mo' includes elements made with CiM Mermaid, Moana, Emerald City, Dirty Martini, Bludini, Lauscha Dark Teal and Effetre Teal transparent with Ocean View shards.
First up a set of sculptural florals using the flat cane and dark twistie cane in the Mint Julep Mini Mo' collection over cool CiM Glacier.
This fantastic set of twistie beads uses the Mint Julep ribbon cane over CiM Blue Moon ltd run and encased with Effetre 006.
Last up for June's Mini Mo' round up post is this wonderfully detailed aquarium tab bead which features Mint Julep Murrini bottom left and little tangs from my Underwater World Mini Mo' from back in January.

Just for fun here is a lovely post about the history of a Mint Julep and the recipe too.
