Very Berry

About this design:

Trying to get out of a color rut, and get ready to make pink earrings for a friend and her team doing the Susan Kromen Breast Cancer Walk. I patina'd the filigrees thinking they'd be pink, but, they are more purple. So....I added the berry pearls, and am ready to think pink again!


Pearls, Vintaj brass filigree, earwires, and patina.

    Very pretty! I’m partial to purple. :)
    You should make a matching necklace while you still remember the patina colors you used.

    The pearls are much prettier than the picture!

    Nancy, I took Lynda’s advice and try to photograph in indirect light. I use to edit the photos!

    Susie, these are so lovely — great design & I love those purples together! :D Thanks for the tips about photographing jewelry. It’s always such an ordeal for me to get my pix to look good & editing them is just as bad. Sigh. I’ll have to check out that site. 8)
