“Inspired Necklace”


Description from Debbi aka Sparkle Chick: A fresh pick loosely based on a necklace that I just finished.
When Christine & I visited last week, she inspired me to try something different...I went out of my creative comfort zone!

    Likewise, congrats for going out of your comfort zone… which beads are outside your comfort zone, if I may ask??? With me it would generally be darker more subdued colors w/o much variation in the stone, like a dull solid black…
    Looking at the choices you have here, can’t wait to see pics of this necklace, it’ll be stunning!!! :)

    Thanks Joyce & Jeanne. It’s not necessarily the beads or colors that are outside of my comfort zone, it’s more of a “designing outside of the box” thing. I tend to keep my designs very simple and I don’t normally use a huge variety of beads.
    Christine named this my Swamp necklace because of the froggie and the greens and browns that I used.

    I certainly understand! I’m usually like you. I love the greens and browns together. I’m not adventurous enough to use those fun animal beads. good for you!

    Debbi, this is gorgeous!!! WOW! You should be very proud of yourself — for a great pick, a beautiful new necklace, and for stepping outside your comfort zone. That’s something I think we all struggle with at times — at least, I know I do. Thanks for sharing this with us! :D

    Beautiful necklace, good job! I’m like you Sparkle Chick…I tend to stay with simple designs as well. But the few that I have made that have a lot of different components have turned out surprisingly well I think! :-)
