Sunset Cowgirl

About this design:

We live in a small rural town in the Southwest where there are a lot of horse ranches, cattle grazing, and even a yearly rodeo. Although I am not a cowgirl, I’ve always wanted to make a feminine western-style necklace. A while back, I pulled some chunky turquoise beads for a necklace waiting to be made, but when I saw these opaque pink agates from Lima, I knew they would work for a petite, scaled down version of what I had in mind. I hope to make a leather wrap bracelet to go along with the necklace when I get a little more time—until then, I linked one to hold me over. So ‘Howdy!’ from the land of beautiful sunsets!

Components:

Pink opaque Agate (LB), white Howlite heishi (LB), Magnesite, Cherry Quartz, pink dyed quartz, pink Czech druks, ASP findings

    That’s one pretty necklace pardner! (sp??) The salmon pinks and turquoise are beautiful together.

    Great designs and beautiful colors too. Plus two strands. Yay! I really like the bead pattern and especially the use of the heishi beads. The bracelet is cool too. It has a nice mix of beads. The future leather wrap bracelet has me intrigued. Can’t wait to see it.

    Howdy to you Crystal. I’ve never seen a southwestern piece that was so feminine. The pinks are so pretty and I especially like the inclusion of the daisy spacers. They make the piece just a bit sparkly.

    What a beautiful set, Crystal. This would look awesome dressed up or with a t-shirt. Have you seen the “southern girls t-shirt line?” I love the colors-you paired-perfect!

    Nice Crystal – Is the second piece a necklace or bracelet? I can’t quite tell. Love your linked beads and the silver spacers. Just wonderful.

    Beautiful colors together Crystal…and a great design! I think you achieved exactly what you wanted to. I’ve never lived in a little rural town…but I think it would be cool. I love horses….but got thrown one too many times and decided that was enough. I always look forward to your posts!

    Thank Y’All :) I sincerely appreciate all your kind comments. Those little pink heishis where fun to work with, but a bit challenging as they could have the potential to get lost in a design. Lining them up was most impactful, so I went with that idea. Thank you again everyone for taking time to post your thoughts.

    Beady, the linked piece is a quick bracelet I made to tide me over until I can find time to make a leather wrapped bracelet for the necklace. I’ve got some ideas–but now just need to find the time & brush up on my skills in making one.

    Sounds like fun.

    Thanks Midge! After I saw your wonderful Superduo bracelets, I’m rethinking the leather wrap bracelet I had in mind….Now….where do I find some salmony-pink Superduos?! :)
