Lemon Custard Pie

About this design:

I had the yellow opal beads in my stash. I love the way the bronzey Pyrite goes with the lemon pie yellow of the opal.


Yellow Opal, pyrite, freshwater pearls, Citrine, brass chain

    Don’t see yellow very often in jewelry. But after seeing what you’ve created here, we should really consider it more. Love your bead and pearl combo!

    Absolutely beautiful. I never wear yellow because it looks yucky on me, so yellow is not one of my favorite colors. But this bracelet is gorgeous and the color combinations are just perfect!!

    OH MY!!!
    I have been collecting yellows and almost yellows and soft browns and tans. I’m not sure what I want to do with them, but I know they are going to be bright and cheerful.
    I *love* your bracelet because it is the fun and fanciful type of look that I’m imagining! I was going to do pewter… but the brass looks SO GOOD!!! :)

    Thanks chickies! It’s not how I usually think of yellow, but there it was sitting in one of my bead boxes, next to the pyrite…

    Nonie T..I think it’s the Pyrite that gives it such a perfect contrast,and keeps it from being too yellow. It makes it interesting and very unique.

    This is great … to me the yellow transparent flat beads look like lemon slices … makes me rethink yellow!
