Burnished Gold, Greens and Browns

About this design:

I received my LB order and had this design in mind---so couldn't wait to get it going! I just love all the colors in this one.


All from LB--TOHO 11/0 seedbeads in mudbrick, citrus spritz, opaque Picasso II hybrid, silver-lined olivine and gold tulip beadcaps. Also, TOHO antique gold 11/0 seedbeads, handmade PC rings and small charm, antique gold leaf toggle clasp and Nymo Size D thread in ash.

    I like EVERYTHING about this. The beadwork pattern is intriguing; the eye keeps going over and over it to take in the richness. The clasp is in an excellent place, and the little tag thingy keeps the top of the necklace from being too regular. The chain is just the right size, and the bead caps are extra pretty. My favorite element is the rings at the bottom. I have rings I’ve never used because I couldn’t figure out where to put them. Here, they add focus and pull all the colors together. Great job!

    Oh wow! I think this is my favorite so far! I love the colors and pattern, especially the mix at the top. The rings are fabulous! They just draw the eye and accentuate the colors and pattern perfectly!

    Thank you all so much for your lovely comments. I have had a time lately trying to upload pics and narratives on here. I wanted to add another pic to this, as the scan washed out the colors, but for some reason, LB won’t upload it! They are darker and richer than pictured, and the rings colors are darker as well. Maybe one of these days I’ll get a new digital camera! LOL

    P.S.–I just noticed the text that I originally uploaded is missing now! I have NO idea what is going on–must be LB gremlins! LOL

    N4B- I saw your text earlier so it was there, at least for a little while :-) There must be website issues. Your picture issue might be part of it. Mine looked so much better on my laptop than they did once they were uploaded.
