“Here comes the Sun...”

Description from Julie Shane: HELP!!!
I bought the GG sun rock and these 3 pyrite strands. What colors do you use with pyrite???

I guess I should use warm colors since it's a SUN. However, I really like the blues. All this turmoil because I *love* that crazy sun rock!

    Julie – - you would succeed in either direction. Have you considered using some of the red creek jasper with pyrite in it ? (and it’s on sale today !) But the blues would be fine – - just pretend the sun is a blue moon – - -

    :) I like blue moon!
    I was also thinking ocean waves with the sun shining on them.

    Either option would be lovely, Julie. Personally, I prefer the warm colors. Which would you wear more often?

    I think you are on the right track, Julie :D

    I like this, Julie! The pyrite goes with anything! I think it warms up “cool” colors and cools down “hot” ones. Am I making sense?

    I would personally use the onyx from the right side and then some.of the.Czech.picasso from the left side. The jasper looks too busy for that sun to me. No one will see the pattern on the sun. I think the jasper would look good with a copper sun.

    Okay just think of it this way…the beads are.the sky…the sky is blue…. the sun is in the sky.

    Well, you know me…I would use the pyrite with the amazonite, along with luster blue crystals and peruvian blue opals. Pyrite also looks good with turquois, and even some yellow stones. Go monochromatic with pyrite and feldspath! Possibilities are endless! It’s all up to YOU!

  9. Julie Shane
    Julie Shane says:

    Deb, I think you are right that the patterns in stone fight with the sun.
    Susie, I agree that monochromatic is the way to go.
    I created another pick that I think is closer to what I want.

    MaryLou says:

    The sun is celestial, along with the moon and the stars, and they all hang out in the changing, blue atmosphere!
    (If you’d like it warm, pyrite ia an element found in some Jaspers.. and would look fine with warm hues!)
