DECEMBER SKY


About this design:

White howlite flat teardrop inspired me to do a winter piece - with all the colors of the winter sky. This is one of the few necklaces that followed a plan; some of them seem to develop a life of their own.

Components:

LB white howlite teardrops and beads, blue recycled glass, some Czech beads, gold glass beads, some amethysts, silver beads and suede. Also gray resin for those cloudy days.

    Great colors for a December sky.  When the beads decide what they want to do you might as well go along with it. :D

    Love the addition of the suede! It adds a little “edge” to the piece and the colors are beautiful!

    exactly what shade of suede is that?…i’ve just received my order including several lengths of blue suede, none of which quite match…maybe YOURS is the one i should have ordered!….again love your colour combo & composition!

    Franny – I got the suede elsewhere and am not sure what the name is. It isn’t a perfect match, but I have a two different shades of blue in here, plus gray, and it blends.

    Love the recycled glass, beautiful shade! And the suede, of course… Sliding knots?

    thanks, Judy…you’re spot on, it’s the overall effect which is beautiful & soft here, not the perfect match, that counts!

    I love the use of the suede and it blends so well with the other stones. Great piece.
