About this design:

Contemplating cars, I came across this beautiful rendering of the Fusion. Though I usually stick to analogous colors, this time I contrasted the blue lapis with a brown stone for a more versatility. The oval is denim lapis.


Lapis, brown andalucite, lapis, silver plated beads with an oval bead in denim lapis.

    Thank you all! Now on to the Honda, the Nissan, the Mercedes, the Volkswagon, etc. No end of inspiration, is there? After all, some of the best designers in the world are hired by car companies, so what is not to emulate. I did attend the recent dazzling auto show at the Convention Center and took photos. Love those “concept” vehicles.

    You may be starting a new trend… designing jewelry to coordinate w/ the customer’s car! Hmm, I have a black Honda w/ grey interior… must get to work… include stick pearls because it’s a stick shift?…
