Pastel Summer

About this design:

The cool, calming colors in the impression jasper I got Friday are just wonderful for summer. I combined peachy - pink glass beads, and African opal ovals along with a hand wire wrapped pendant.

    Okay Becca, this is FABULOUS!! Your addition of the copper to the pendant really amps up the whole thing in a very stuble way, without it it wouldn’t be nearly as stunning! The soft blues make me think of a perfect beach day. Very, very impressive!

    Wowow! the copper wire work around the focal bead is a show stopper, and the way you have varied the small beads between the larger stones is inspired!

    Becca, Becca, Becca! Your pieces are truly inspiring. This one is phenomenal!
    And if imitation is the best form of flattery,(aka stealing ideas, LOL!) then I’m going to try to imitate your imagination!
    You’ve inspired me to really put some effort into learning wire wrapping! Thank you!
