It is about how much I love working with color! The inspiration was from all of the wonderful LB neons!
Components: Numerous neon beads in pink/green/yellow/orange/red. (Sorry about the slant lines, but it was the only way I could get the *#%¥ autocorrect to stop changing what I typed), silk ribbons, colorful Art Wire, gold tone metal accents, etc.
Sometimes, I have several different components and somehow I will start just seeing them in the same piece. The final click in this design was the...
Components: This is really a LimaBeads piece: The pendant is the Gaea Ceramic Catalina Cerulean on Buff, the metals are the African brass and an etched brass chain, the ribbon is a hand-dyed silk sky blue/green blend. The metal pieces are the Vintaj natural brass magnolia petal bead caps, the antique African brass 3 rope tubes which are on the 2nd strand which is comprised of the brass tubes and Czech glass seed beads in mottled shades of wheat. The third strand is a variety of Miyuki glass seed beads in various finishes, shades, and shapes of browns and golds, accented by clear faceted aqua quartz ovals. The final strand is of handmade green African beads with shimmering brown mother of pearl triangles. The clasp is my handmade Vintaj brass hook clasp with one of the quartz beads included on the hook. I am sure that at least 50%, if not more, are all Lima Beads components. THANKS, LB for having such beautiful products. They make jewelry design so easy:)
