This time around the Margie and Me challenge palette was an intense mix of turquoise, and pink with little hints of purple and coral. The inspiration was Islamic mosaic tile.
Here are my creations: The first is my Persian Tile Ring. I finished this version, and also created the tutorial to put in my shop.

Then I took the pattern from the Persian Ring and created a pendant by swapping up some of the colors. The result is an almost bib-style necklace.

Last but not least, I made this ring which is very 3D and has a really high profile. It's different than what I normally do, but I enjoyed creating it.

Alright, ladies, your turn! Where are your Margie and Me's?

Here is my piece for this round of Margie and Me: the "City of Marrakech" cuff. I not only tried to incorporate most of the colors in the palette, but also tried to capture a chracteristic shape that can be found in Islamic architecture, for example in windows and towers. When I started working on this piece this seemed to become a design catastrophy. The colors didn't match, I couldn't find the right cabs to work with and of course not the right seedbeads. But when I added the edging and the clasp I knew that I like this. Big Smile I'm very happy with the outcome!

Thanks to Marcie for pushing our creativity and working with color schemes we wouldn't have chosen ourselves!

Marcie, I love your pieces! I just may have to get that first ring tutorial, it's so pretty and so versatile.

I got real enthusiastic and made three entries for the challenge: a bracelet and two necklaces.
