Granny Smith Apples with Blueberries

About this design:

I have fallen in love with Czech glass table cut oval beads which I purchased from Lima Beads. I made a necklace for myself from the blue ones and got so many compliments that I decided to create a piece with another color, in this case, apple green. I used five of the green ovals and highlighted them with navy blue seaglass. I found some tiny pewter square frame beads and put one navy Swarovski crystal in each one. I was pleased with the results.

    Lime & navy are very interesting together, I really like it! Haven’t been drawn to those beads before, but your design makes me see them a little differently! :)

    Thanks for all your comments. Lime and navy is one of my favorite color combos. Look so good with summer white.
