Victoria


About this design:

I finally decided what to do with the irresistable Victoria beads from Unicorne. I tried them with cobalt, with purple, with crystal, with lots of silver.

The green luster sparkles just right for the Victoria beads. I bought the indigo crystal beads to go with the Victorias but they looked better with the blue luster. Simple earrings for each bracelet. Mixed the remaining green and blue for a stack bracelet and I'll add a couple silver bangles. I added a pic of all three bracelets together, but I don't think I'd ever wear them all at once. Too much.

I'm content with the results. I'm ready to mix & match, dress up or down, and just enjoy the Victoria beads. They make me smile!

Components:

From LB: Victoria by Unicorne. Czech luster praire green 10mm. Czech luster transparent blue 10mm. TierraCast meadow heishi. eggplant olive silk ribon. indigo crystal beads 14mm. silver-plated filigree bead. swirled heishi. pewter coin beads. I strung them on stretchy-cord because I didn't want a toggle taking away from the big beads. And because I refuse to fight with my jewelry at 6:30 in the morning!

    By the way. I SO appreciate the list of all materials.
    The Prarie Green glass beads remind me of a super high grade Moss Aquamarine look.
    I never would have known what they were. Very happy for the info!! :)
