“Leaves and Luster”


Description from Julie Shane: I ordered the PH double leaf pendant. I want to hang it from ribbon and silk cord... keep it simple... but I want to embellish a little...

I already have lots of mix&match earrings and bracelets... red creek jasper... garnet... chocolate brown pearls...

HELP! What do I add to the PH necklace?
Champagne luster is subtle.
Smoky topaz luster is dark.
Pink topaz is lovely but limited.

    Very nice pick! Using the double leaf PH pendant, I would mix a little of Czech Champagne, Smoky Topaz and the Pink Topaz. Adding other PH elements would round out the design.

    Any warm pink would work. The pick is lovely by the way!

    I’ve used the gold/smoky topaz beads and they’re very striking. I think I’d go for richness with the PH piece–the bronze luster beads are another good choice.

    I like the idea of the Czech glass pieces with it-there are so many styles in Czech glass-I especially love the little Saturn beads. You are really great at putting color and contrast together-I’m sure it will be beautiful. Make sure to post it, so we can see it. The PH pendant is awesome!

    I would go for the gold/smokey, red/bronze and pistachio, BTW that pendant is awesome :D

    Awesome pick! Many choices to choose from ;) My attention is drawn to the gold/smoky topaz czeck together with the double leaf PH.

    Thanks Chickies! I really do appreciate your advice.

    I have the 10mm gold/smokey lusters AND the 12mm topaz/pink lusters in my shopping bag… Thanks to the BGBM. Gotta love it!!! :) I’m going to find a few copper pieces. Still deciding on the exact ribbon…

    I’ll post a pic when I finally get all the bits & pieces… and the time to create.
