Harlequin, Joker, Jester

About this design:

Two holed beads. Made the pattern with the diamonds - and the shapes and colors reminded me of a joker or a harlequin or a court jester. Fun to wear.

    Thanks kye and sweetjane.
    Robin – I checked out Pinterest – some lovely jewelry. I usually try to stay away from Pinterest – afraid it will influence my design choices. (or maybe it makes me feel inadequate) – Ha.

    I like the argyle, too! I was trying to think of the name of the french clown, harlequin. Thanks for the help!

    What a fantastic pattern! How do you come up with these patterns? I get a lot of my ideas right after I wake up and am still in bed trying to get myself going–some where between half-asleep and consciousness. The red against the ivory really shows off the design.

    Beady Little Eyes says:

    Thanks Crystal – I just start playing around. Sometimes I get inspiration when half asleep also.
