Rainbow Falls


About this design:

When I saw these Rainbow Agate Druzy beads, I knew I just had to have them. Yesterday I pulled out these new arrivals and wondered "what am I going to create with these?" I sat there for the entire day looking at them in bewilderment. Then simplicity called out to just let the beads speak for themselves. Now...hum,...what will I wear this with?!

Components:

(LB): Rainbow Agate Druzy 8mm, Czech matte iris druk 6mm, Czech FP matte faceted 4mm, Ant Copper oval cable chain; From stash: purple aventurine, Swarovski crystals-2 colors, matte copper seed beads, Ant Copper plate focal, copper head pins, AC lobster clasp

    Classy and elegant definitely, and I also love the way you designed the focal accent. I can see this being worn with a softly draped summer top, maybe the kind with a layered or fluttery hem.

    Thank you for all your comments! I was hoping to wear it tonight, but since I’m more of a casual gal, I’m having a hard time in deciding what to pair it with–it’s a little dressy for me! I guess it is good to step outside one’s comfort zone once in a while! :)

    I would rock this with jeans and a cute black tee. It’s still casual enough that it can be worn with anything, but it also has a dressy vibe for special occasions. Beautiful piece!

    As the other ladies said, it’s elegant and gorgeous! I love how you used the copper focal with this, perfect! :)

    Crystal Canary says:

    Thanks everyone! I love the idea of wearing it with jeans–that one never occurred to me! The blues in it would really stand out, and the matte finish helps tone it down. Great idea! :)

    Batticat says:

    This is really different. I would love to wear it with a casual outfit such as a textured light grey knit top or one in darker jewel tones found on the beads.

    What a wonderful group of friends–thanks! Del, I spent who knows how long trying to send you a private message and gave up as that wasn’t working to well; wish I could have figured it out! I have had that focal for a while now waiting for just the right application; I purchased it at FMG. (Sorry Lima, I hate to promote another company!) Sadly, though, I don’t have the item number as I tossed the baggie. Sorry I couldn’t be more help. :(

    Crystal Canary says:

    Surprise…I found the number if you are still interested. :)

    What a knockout necklace. The stones are wonderful,and I love the focal. Sometimes,it takes a lot of thought to do a “simple” design.
    It’s just elegant. I’d love to see it in the sunlight.
