All About the Pink


About this design:

I've been off work for the last couple weeks due to having surgery for an odd eye disease. It's made it somewhat difficult to do any beading. But now I'm on the mend and my eyes are much better. I'm going back to work on Monday, brought a new dress for the occasion, and needed something to wear with it. I have a hard time working with pink, but I LOVE how this turned out!

Components:

Pink jade faceted rounds, black onyx faceted rondelles, pearls, peach moonstone rounds and wheels, seed beads, and sterling silver toggle. All from Lima, my LBS, or gem/bead show.

    Pink is not my go to color either but it really works well with your design. Isn’t it great when you can make your own jewelry to coordinate with what ever you want to wear. Definitely one of the perks of being a jewelry artist.

    This is SO pretty. All my favorite things, like pearls and moonstones. I don’t do much pink either but this totally works. Moonstones are my favorite stone of all. I have a lot of them but no pink ones. Glad you are better.

    I love pink clothing and wish I owned more of it. I have a ton of pink beads and don’t know how I’ll ever use them up. If anyone wants any, I’ll be glad to sell them half price.

    I’ve only made one pink necklace. This makes me think I should work with pink more often. It’s so beautiful. You’ve used a wonderful mix of shapes and colors. I’m so glad to hear you’re feeling better. Your necklace is perfect for your new dress. Beautiful! Beautiful!

    Oh, this is gorgeous! Pink is very hard for me too–but you absolutely hit a ‘home run’ on this one. The selection of beads you chose look amazing together. Awesome! :)
