Week 14: Beetroot Purple

Took these photos ages ago but haven’t posted them for some reason. This necklace was made with silver-plated components and bright pink glass beads.

By your headpins combined... Week 14: Beetroot Purple

Week 12: Storm Blue

Took me a while to get this one just right, but here it is!

The focal and clasp accent are fluorite, and they go nicely with the glass seed beads and glass pearls. Silver-plated chain and findings “round” this one out! (Get it? Because rings!)

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. 🙂

The raw materials The hard part -- my fingers haven't forgiven me yet. Close up

All done!

Week 8: Forever Blue

Tada! Knocked this one out in a couple of hours today. I got these glass focal pieces in a big jumble sale, and it was clearly their time to get put to use.

The raw materials. Stringing it along! A (fuzzy, sorry!) work in progress.

The end result!
