I am very happy to share with you my new jewelery design Colors of
Fall necklace. I made it as a participant of Artbeads blogging program.
Inspiration for this
necklace came from gorgeous colors of our autumn. This year luckily fall
was very long and warm with only slight signs of frost in the mornings.
So there were no question, main color palette for the necklace would be
bright shiny red mixed with bronze and teal exactly how were leaves and
sky this fall.
I started necklace with wonderful TOHO seed
beads: metallic bronze, silver-lined teal and siam ruby, with
accents of silver-lined teal magatamas
and it really shined as you can imagine with such a variety of
silver-lined and metallic finishes. I was slightly concerned with
durability of metallic
but it surprised me, not even one got damaged while working. I was
happy to find good quality metallic beads finally.
I was very curious to
work with cubic zirconia, so orange oval drop in cubic
zirconia worked just perfectly as centerpiece with simple column
beads of the same color as a side accents. As expected orange drop
looked more like red, very bright red, I ordered based on the photo, not
the name and great quality of Artbeads
product presentation did it's job, color was exactly how I wanted.
For embellishments I
chose sparkly bicones
section in indicolite golden shadow and vitrail colors, and rounds
in hyacinth. Colors worked great, I am sure I can trust planning colors
for the new project from the screen when ordering from Artbeads. Final touches were made
with gorgeous leaf from czech glass
leaf beads and teal green leaf bead from vintage section.
I truly enjoyed working
on this project and hope this enjoyment contributed to the look of the
necklace. Thanks a lot to Artbeads
for giving me such a great opportunity, wonderful quality materials,
friendly communication, prompt shipment. It was my pleasure to work with
the whole team.
