Summer yellow


About this design:

I like combination yellow and purple.
Do you think I should add 2 beads (1 on each side of the necklace) just like focal one?

Components:

Yellow Agate, Amethyst rondelles and nugget, sterling silver.

    Love color combination! I wouldn’t change anything in this design.

    This is really nice as is, but I see where you might want to place another amethyst bead a little up from the center one. However, with contrasts like this, less is more – the eyes need somewhere to rest and the yellow draws you right down to the amethyst focal.

    Irina, this design is very attractive. I really like the yellow agate especially paired up with the amethyst. If you want to add a little more to it, not that it needs it, but ….. you can never go wrong with big silver spacers, silver rounds or something for the eye to works it way up from the pendant. It is great though the way you have it too. Hope that helps some.

    I love it. Just as is. That purple focal is balanced beautiful by the small purple beads, and the yellow nuggets are awesome.

    I agree with the others, Irina — this design is perfect just as it is! Love these colors together! :D

    Irina, I have a very similar design .

    (But Amber, Amethyst and Lapis pendant.)

    I love yellow and purple/blue together .

    In my case though the amber beads have a triangular rice shape which visually are more airy shape wise.

    I your case the Yellow agate looks a little bit too heavy for the pendant IMHO of cause :)

    I would put one more round amethyst on the each side of the pendant and by distancing yellow agate beads from the pendant will give more air … Also I would place two more round amethysts on each side after the third yellow agate bead .

    It will give some more air and visually lighten up the necklace… But… then it is me.
