Week 13: Faded Rose

I finished this one last week but haven’t gotten around to posting it until now! I used an autumn jasper focal (the pink flecks match the challenge swatch!) with peridot gemstone chips; glass beads; and antiqued brass beads, chain, bells, and findings.

Week 9: Bay

Finally got to finish these! I’ve been waiting to use these green aluminum earwires, and Week 9 offered the perfect opportunity.

The beaded beads are flat even-count peyote (curled and stitched to make tubes). The green gemstone is dyed mountain “jade” (I think), which is a dolomite marble from Asia. The round drops are mother of pearl.

These colors make me think of iridescent mermaid scales. 🙂

All done!

Week 5: Orchid Hush

Since this week’s color is in the same family as last week’s, I decided to continue with the lilac stone rounds and create a pair of earrings to match last week’s necklace!
