Fantasy Fresh PicksPosted by Ali on September 29 at 04:02 pm
There were some great Fresh Picks last week! It looks like Cuban Queen and WLB created true classics with Apple Picking and Arizona Sky. Not only were they in the top 3 last week, but they were #5 and #6 this week! We have 3 new favorites this week and I love them all.
If you create Fresh Picks that you’re proud of – be sure to add them to the comments below so we can all check them out. Maybe we’ll even add you to our favorites.
The top 11 this week:
- Merlot & Moonlight
- Pacific Coast
- Old Stories
- Arizona Sky
- Apple Picking
- Coffee Beans
- American Nightshade
- Blue Jean Baby
- Harvest Wheat
What I love about the top 3 favorites:
Merlot & Moonlight – This sounds so relaxing and peaceful. I love the banded agates mixed with the smoke filled sparkle of the Rainbow Obsidian Drops and the Druzy Pieces. The use of pearls and cz with ruby and garnet offers an interesting contrast in transparency and luster. This pick gets an A from me.
Pacific Coast - Oh how I would love to be there right now. The colors in this piece, work well to evoke the colors of the pacific as the light reflects off the waves in the evening. I am in love. If I were going to design something from this great pick, I think I might try some sea blue freshwater pearls or one of the mermaid pewter pieces by Green Girl – what do you think?
Old Stories – What a great name! This reminds me of tales that I would read as a child that were followed by fantastical dreams of castles and dragons. To my delight this is what I found. The use of ruby zoisite for the color theme with stones to complement is really great. I think of the mote around a castle for the abalone! If I designed something with this one, I might try adding a little plum freshwater pearl.
What do you think Lima Beaders?
