Coral Bliss

About this design:

I've been working with a lot of beachy colors lately. This one just came about because I wanted to use more earthy tones than the usual brights and whites in summer pieces.


Feldspath nuggets, Czech glass, Toho seed beads, Vintaj chain and findings and Parawire for the clasp, all from LB. 8mm faceted coral and coral tubes, Swarovski pearls, glass pearls, recycled glass and gold spacers from my stash.

    Your color mix is just perfect, Angela ! Enough coral to be bright, but not too much to scare away the colorphobic – - love your design, too, with the two different colored strands of seed beads.
