“Thanks, Sam!”

 

Description from Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick: My daughter, Samantha, gave me a gift certificate to a local bead store. I told her I would get something special for me. I got a gorgeous lemon topaz teardrop and peridont faceted rondelles. I have since purchased the lemon quartz rondelles from lima, but have yet to string it. Maybe this weekend.

    So glad you mentioned a picture – I just suggested to the Lima staff that they start a forum where we could post designs we’re working on for input from others.

    so – this is where I’m at….
    obviously, the wrap will be done in gold, but I practiced with less expensive craft wire. I was thinking of 2 slightly larger square golds in the center. The lemon quartz rondelles seem to get lost on the white background, but not against skin and clothing.
    any constructive feedback would be welcome!

    Jeanne – What a lovely design, simple yet stunning when worn I bet. You’re right about changing the bail to gold. How large are the gold cubes? How large are the larger ones? You don’t want to go too large because it might overpower the design.

    these are 3 mm. I would probably only go up to 4mm just around the drop. I think the peridot are 5. because Lima’s yellow quartz are 6mm.
    thanks for the help!

    4mm would work beautifully, anything larger would take away from the peridot too much.

    Thanks for all of the feedback! I really must get on with my Saturday – laundry groceries and all that. You know with the husband out of town and the teenager at work, I’ll be back later! And I will post a pic when I finish the necklace. You’re comments have been a big help!

    ok ladies, it’s done!
    I made it just 16 1/4 inches because I’m small boned. and I’ll probably wear it against bare skin. I can always use a chain extender whenever I might want it longer.
    Thanks for your help – Jeanne

    the earrings are done!
    I hate to say it but the wraps look a little sloppy in the close-up. but the do look just fine to my old eyes.

    too bad my husband will be back tomorrow and I can’t spend my day beading and chatting!
