What To Do With The Gypsy Hoop

About this design:

I've had this Gypsy hoop for awhile...from Nancy...and couldn't figure out a good design. I'm not even sure this will stay like this...it actually looks better in person.

Components:

PH Gypsy hoop, Carnelian, speckled ceramic beads, sari silk, copper chain and waxed linen.

    Sweetjane, I think this is very pretty and quite a statement piece! I am loving all the orange, especially with the fuschia Sari ribbon. I don’t know what PH means for the gypsy hoop, but it looks like colored hammered metal? I really like it and what ever design you create, I’m sure it will look stunning.

    Ditto to all above. I love this piece. You have a real flair for these designs. If you do really want to modify this design, when you get my next pkg, you’ll find some things I think might be just the ticket. But I think its perfect as is.

    Thank you all for your comments and Happy Halloween!! I hope I get some trick or treaters…but I usually only get one or two. This piece is a bit unusual so I think I’ll keep it myself. New pieces are on the horizon…especially new earrings!

    Anything Gypsy is something I like. Such brilliant colors in this piece. Flashy. You know how much I like flashy, LOL.

    Jane, very nice embellishment on the PH hoop focal! The Carnelian was a wonderful choice. This has such a warmth to it–perfect for the colder days that lie ahead!
