All things bright and beautiful


About this design:

I started this necklace with two very different beads I wanted to use. The red pendant is a tagua nut slice, and just seemed so bold that it deserved some bright smaller beads to orbit it. The second beads I wanted to use are the small sparkly silver beads which I've used in the link sections.

As is often the case with my jewelry I start with very different beads I want to use, then I have to figure out how to add other beads to the mixture! So I went for brights, some opaque like the green and yellow beads, and others with a see-through effect, such as the red and blue glass beads. Turquiose howlite beads were also used. Finally, I added an extra pop of red with the red cloissone beads.

Components:

Tagua nut slice pendant, silver artistic wire, silver sparkly beads, green resin beads, red cloissone beads, red glass beads, turquoise howlite beads, unknown material yellow beads.

    Oh, Susannah :) another wonderful piece of artwork. I really like this design, a sort of “organized eclectic” style (if that makes any sense). I love the use of all the colors in it as well. Love your work!

    Thanks for your lovely comments. I couldn’t explain it better than ‘organized eclectic’! Sometimes it’s nice to let loose and not be too tied to a colour theme or plan.
