“Chinese Vase”

   

Description from Cuban Queen Crazy Chick: I just picked up these great little vase-shaped white porcelain beads that are painted with blue Chinese-style designs. I am pairing them with cobalt-blue glass beads and silver spacers as an accent.

    Gorgeous necklace and beautiful pick evoking it. :) I like both a whole lot.

    Thanks Christine! I tried to stray from my usual pattern – normally I prefer big, bold, chunky necklaces and I’m usually very symmetrical in my designs so I decided to do something different. It ended up looking very different from how I originally pictured it, but I still have some of those vase beads so I think I’ll try another style with them. How’s everything with you? I think I read on one of the picks that you got some of that olive fire agate. I just got mine the other day. I like it but I have to admit it looks a little brighter on the site. What do you think?

    Ivy, beautiful necklace!!!! Those vase beads are really cool. I really like the way it is strung too. I usually like things symmetrical also, but this makes me change my mind. :) Great pick, btw. Were you really busy at the restaurant over Memorial Day weekend?

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Hi Cathy! Thank you :) We did have a really good holiday weekend, we ended up opening on Monday too, cuz the boaters were all still around. How are you?

    CAS says:

    Hi Ivy, it’s a really funny green, it totally depends on what you pair it with. Put the Olive Fire Agate with yellow or yellow under-toned pieces, and it will “pop” I promise. Put it with anything with blue under-tones, and it disappears into the background. It depends if you want it to be a focal color or a background color.

    You did manage some symmetry in your necklace, though I’m sure you didn’t realize it. If you break your necklace down into “vignettes” (individual design groups within a larger design) as Debbi calls them, you’ll see that you did manage symmetry of bead size.

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    I know, I couldn’t help myself, I had to throw in a little symmetry somewhere lol

    OMG!!!Crazy I bought the very same beads along with cobalt blue glass beads! My necklace will look similar to yours if I can ever finish up the school junk and make it!

    Crazy, I also almost bought some oriental blue and white beads that have a red design in them.
