“Challenge: What can I do?”

  

Description from Mary S - Sweet Chick: OK. I need help.
I have some 12mm larimar blue cazy lace agate puff rounds. I bought them on a whim just to try something different. Now I don't know what to do with them. They are SO BRIGHT!!
My tendency is to tone them down but maybe I should do something really colorful and put them with some bright orange coral nuggets from LB.
Can you help me out? Make some picks of your own or give me a few suggestions. Please?!

    oooohhh, sweet chick:

    another challenge, I love it… although I love all the crazy lace varieties that L.B. has, I haven’t used the larimar blue crazy lace much lately… used to in early Picks, but was still figuring out effective color combos. one of the challenges with such a strongly vivid stone (like the ruby fuschia crazy lace) is how to pair the stone up with others that will help complement, not also “fight for attention” – like the contrast of the china silver here, will think on it… and so will other chickies here I’m sure…. :)

    I think oranges or reds would brighten it up well! If you want to tone it down though, brown would probably work! Hope that helps! (maybe I’ll play with it in my picks this afternoon)!

    Winter is over, so why tone down. Spread your wings and fly Sweet Chick! I’m going to look at adding pearls w/ the larimar blue crazy lace. Catch you later.

    I think what you did here is gorgeous, Mary! I have a tendancy to tone things down, too – as though I need point this out – but I hear you about challenging ourselves to new ideas – I’ll give it some thought.

    Had a few minutes, so look at my “I’ll Fly Away”. This is fun.
