Green Gold

About this design:

I love green and gold (or green and yellow), which are happy colors for me. Really pleased with the seed beads from LB that neatly combine the two.


Seed beads, rock crystal, Czech glass, lampwork glass, gold-plated end caps and clasp

    Laud, I love your necklace! Everything looks like it was just made for each other :) I especially love how you worked the rock crystal into your design. The purple crystal is lovely compliment to the greens and gold, too.

    Thanks, Lois! There are tiny bits of amethyst/purple in the glass pillows. I picked up on that with the Czech rondelles.

    I like the rock crystal, too. There are tiny clear bubbles on the lampwork pieces. They suggested the clear crystal to me.

    I love this. I too am a big fan of gold and green. And the seed bead band is perfect with the lamp work beads.

    Everything is so beautifully done. I love how you used a touch of purple/lavender (at least thats what it looks like on my screen). It really adds a special touch to an already awesome and elegant design.

    What a lovely combinaton of soft color. I also loke the Rock Crystal,because it separates,and gives a floaty look. Fabulous!

    The rondelles are more red-violet than periwinkle, but even through the lens of my camera, they came out looking purplish. The actual color is warmer and less confrontational than the bluer tone in the image.
