a compliment on one of my recent creations – a gold choker and some beads and a piece of fused dichroic glass, golds and deep teal and bronzes on a china red base – quite festive-looking, without being traditional Christmas jewelry…and even 3-D…
When I made the necklace – I started out to do one thing, but this piece wanted to go its own way, so I just went with the flow, and got the heck out of the Muse’s way – it’s the wise choice!
The photo doesn’t do it justice. Available for sale, with matching crystal earrings, $35 plus S/H.
Again using the Color Purple Swarovski assortment of pearls, I surrounded a silver butterfly pin with the pearls & purple and silver crystals. The silver collar can be adjusted to fit one’s neck. The earrings and necklace set is $40. It will be available at the Carlyle Wine and Art Festival this weekend, August 18 & 19, in Carlyle Illinois.
Once Sue saw the beautiful coppery faceted Swarovski crystal pendant she ordered as a gift for her friend, she wanted one for herself, but with gold crystals, not amber chips.I actually designed the necklace a few different times before deciding on this pattern, because it balances the sparkling and the matte, the gold, the copper, and the crystal, the cube, bicones, and pearl shapes so well. I can’t wait to see Sue wearing it – she will be stunning! (And the jewlery’s not bad, either!)
