Though it may unfold slowly and with effort, you'll thrive in good time, so have faith and keep smiling, dear. When we discovered these vintage carved blue beads among a stash of beads at market earlier this year, we were drawn immediately to their stunning cobalt hue and unusual stripe-like ribbed design.
