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 1: Nostalgia Rose

After a distinct lack of inspiration early last week, I finally decided what direction I wanted to take this piece in, and I’m pretty pleased with the result.

Since I decided to go with the terra rosa jasper, I felt that gunmetal-plated findings would complement the greys in the stone perfectly. I used jumprings to create helm chain to hold the focal piece and to separate the stringing wire sections of seed beads, faceted bicones, and terra rosa rounds.

From start to finish:

Hmm, what to choose... Finally, some good ideas! Nearly there...

Finished piece!
