Would you like some juicy orange?


About this design:

This is a bit different from what I usually make - it is made with copper colored artistic wire, coldplated beads and a rather special colormix for me - orange and light purple/pink. I have also used some leather cord, and that is not often! BTW - Thank you, Arja for sending me som artistic wire!

Components:

Lampwork beads (different artists), ceramic bead (Gaea), Pink-light purple Jade, Goldplated spacerbeads, Brushed Vermeil discs, Light Pink leather cord, bright copper colored artistic wire, copper heart charm, copper toggle
