Favorite Fresh Pick VarietyPosted by Ali on November 13 at 01:58 pm
We’ve got lots of different inspiration here this week! Chocolate (always awesome), fall in the Southwest, aloe, snow and rain (not sure how I feel about these two), starry skies, marine life, flowers, and one of the most popular songs of all time. For those of us in the northern parts of the country – winter is coming and there’s nothing we can do to stop it, so we might as well make picks and design lots of pretty things.
This week’s Top 10:
- Chocolate on a Blue Day by CAS
- SouthWest Fall Garden by Haute Rawx
- Aloe by Tab
- Snow Bunnies by Jyll P
- November Rain by Cuban Queen
- Snow Falling on Cedars by Beadaholchick
- Night of a 1000 Stars by Lima
- Dolphins And Sharks by Perlemamma
- tulips and daffodils by Julie v
- Amazing Grace by Sandy S
Chocolate on a Blue Day -Yummy. I think we are in for several blue days this November, at least in Michigan. Chocolate days are ahead – yeah! I love the blue stones you chose to combine for this pick – blue calsillica jasper, chryscolla quartz, blue pietersite & blue tiger eye (great for depth), blue goldstone (nice touch of sparkle) and finally Peruvian blue opal (a personal fav). The antique jasper is definitely chocolaty.
SouthWest Fall Garden -This reminds me of this great place Kevin and I stay at in the Catalina Mountains. Breathtaking. This pick does a beautiful job giving the Southwest Fall colors. I love love love the mix of peachy pinks with greens and oranges. The pieces of Stampt gold chosen are perfect – sun face charm, vine print qypsy hoop, feather, and scrolling 3 ring connector. I’ve been staring at this pick for nearly an hour, unfortunately I have to move on. I hope some jewelry gets made from this pick – I’m sure everyone would love to see some pictures. (hint hint!)
Aloe - Clean and Refreshing. I really like the combinations of green stones you chose. Peace jade and lemon chrysoprase are very soft and well… peaceful. The Canadian jade and Green Garnet add depth; and the apple green turquoise, China chrysoprase and yellow turquoise offer the punch. As always Green Girl adds that extra special touch of nature. I can’t wait to see what you make from this!
Great job this week everyone. I’ve noticed a couple new fresh pickers – Welcome!
We are planning some improvements to the Fresh Picks pages so stay posted.
