Colorful Asymmetry

About this design:

A customer requested a "colorful" necklace. It couldn't be too expensive as she didn't want problems carrying it into the Ukraine as a present to a friend. Scratching my head I searched my inventory and came across these "left-over" chalk turquoise beads that were in eclectic colors. I'd done an asymmetric designs previously using monotone blue or blue/green combos. So...decided to give a colorful combo a try. The customer was very happy (and the recipient loved it).


Dyed chalk turquoise in various shapes/colors, silver-plated brass bears and clasp

    Very cute…funky yet feminine. Love the balanced asymmetry in this.
    I take it the other photo is.your previous design. Also nice..more bohemian/hippy looking.

    Thanks, Deb. Yes, the second picture is of my original design. No two are ever the same as I work with eclectic mixed packages.

    Cool and funky. I like how the major beads are asymmetrical, but also the “background” beads are too. The tiny seed beads contrast with the long tube beads. Cute!!!

    Especially love the groupings of beads in the teal necklace. Both are great!
