Fresh Pick: “Dark & Earthy Rose”

Posted by limabeads on January 26 at 12:51 am

This Fresh Pick was designed by Julie Shane on Jan. 25, 2013.

Julie Shane says: Inspired by Coral's Fresh Pick called Gothic Garden. I just couldn't resist the combo that she gave us.
The Earthenwood pendant is front and center and the links are earrings. Lots of oxblood dangles encircling the black diamond beads. Grey iris to give a bit of softness to the reds. A few bellflowers to make it more springtime.

    Lovely! The colors remind me of my mother-she adores roses, and dusky shabby chic damasks. I really like this one!
