Scorched Heart


About this design:

Working with the Jade Scott heart pendant, I found these palm wood beads and thought they matched the lines and color of the pendant nicely. Then I found some red bend jasper flat ovals and I was off and running from there.

Components:

Red Bend Jasper flat ovals, Czech Glass Pomegranate Oval, Czech glass blood orange fire polished rondelles, TOHO gilded marble orange round 11/0 Seed Bead, TOHO frosted Terra Cotta Apollo Hybrid Round 8/0 Seed Bead all from Lima Beads. Ceramic rondelle washer in metallic red from Yuki designs. Antique copper heart charm from daisychainextra, Palm wood oval beads, 6/0 seed beads, antique copper round beads, jump rings, chain, and clasp from my stash.

    Awesome color combo! Peach to burnt-red to brown… I haven’t been quick enough to grab a Jade Scott piece. I’m jealous!

    Another great design, Wanda – - clearly you are over your “slump” – - – love the way you have used the heart pendant !

    You never seem to make a misstep – another beautiful necklace!

    Lovely combination. I stared at this for a while,because the design is so interesting and well done. I really like the way it goes from dark to light. The Jasper beads are so much nicer than they appear on the web site.

    Gail Layne says:

    Love the progression from light to dark. Especially the darkest beads by the heart. It seems like it tells a story.

    Beadzilla aka Wanda says:

    Thank you all for the wonderful comments! It’s always a treat to read them, cause everyone sees things differently. For example, how some of you saw the progression from dark to light, and I didn’t even notice it as I was designing it. :-D

  10. Sonja J
    Sonja J says:

    Love the colors! Perfect combination, they all work so harmoniously together with the pendant. That little heart charm is the perfect addition that really ties it all together! Beautiful work! =^__^=

    Love the combo. Great necklace. Your designs are so harmonious and elegant.

  13. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    I also love the placement of the heart pendant and the dark beads accenting that section. Funny you didn’t notice that but I’ve noticed the same thing in comments to me. People see things I didn’t. This is great combination if colors and shapes. You really have the asymmetrical strung necklace design locked up!!
