Blue on Black

About this design:

The Blue in this Stick is an amazing cobalt blue color... it was not what I was expecting at all (much bigger than I had pictured) but I love it! and it just put itself together with the little bows and crystals! What do you think?


LB Black and Blue Agate, LB Luster Silver Crystals, Silver/Blue Seed Beads and Little Black Bows.

    If I had the gift of wire wrapping I bet you could really do something amazing with this pendant but that darn wire just does not curl and twist right for me… It just becomes one big rats nest! Ha… not a pretty sight!

    WOW! Ihave looked at these pendants a few times, but couldn’t picture anything to do with them. I love this blue but really like the green as well.

    You have showcased this pendant BEAUTIFULLY!!! :)
    Simple but striking. I like that you carried the blue color throughout the piece in the tiny seed beads… subtle but effective.

    Yes and no on the wire wrapping. Sometimes its just too much. I think it.looks gorgeous like it is with nothing detracting from it.
