absolutely crazy for geometric forms in jewelry, and according to the Pinterest
boards, so is everybody else. Geometric jewelry is one hot trend that will
carry into fall, and it's easy to incorporate into your collection.
perfectly patterned piece can bring order to an otherwise disorganized outfit.
On days I'm feeling a little shabby, putting on a sharp-angled architectural
piece helps me feel pulled-together. So, I
decided to put my own flare on two designs from the August/September issue of Beadwork.
|Pulsating Diamonds necklace by Diane Fitzgerald
||My earrings using Diane's design
I've been coveting a
particular pair of seed bead earrings from my favorite designer chain for
several months, and I found making just two of the components in Diane
Fitzgerald's Pulsating Diamonds necklace would achieve the designer look I've
been coveting. The easy pair of earrings I made with Diane's diamonds is
perfect for wearing to the office or for an afternoon excursion in the mountains--and I am always complimented on them!
|Heroine Necklace by Jean Power
||My bracelet using Jean's design
I'm always compelled to pair statement earrings with an equally bold piece around
my wrist, I thought I'd try to turn one of Jean Power's Heroine Necklace triangle
links into an interesting bracelet focal. I'm a big fan of Jean's work, and her
dramatic, sculptural projects inspire me. This triangle-link design is the
perfect match for the diamond-shaped earrings. I made several more links to use
as a necklace focal.
