I was very challenged with my soup as I would never on my own choose black as a major design element. However I thought my vintage inspired brass looked real good with the black chain. But you know me, I have to have some color and so the brass flower has Lumiere paint and Krylon sealer to retain its colors. Did you see the Golden yellow freshwater pearls?
I added beads from my CC Designs stash and Wah-La
Next I just wanted to use some of those Czech fire polished Jet beads in a multi strand bracelet so I used blue seed beads that matched the main focal sent to me, and they coordinate nicely with the Preciosa crystals. I also used gold to match the freshwater pearls.
I had a kitchen fire last week everybody is fine and my house is still standing. The insurance company had to send a cleaning crew.
I guess your wondering why Im telling you this in the middle of a party? Smoke all through my house couldn't find my beads, still can't find some things and it made me late posting, I do apologize. Now for the Main Focal and clasp. Everything I love, dangles, sparkles a little silver filigree. I even did beadwork:
This beaded neck chain IS Gorgeous with this focal. The pictures don't due justice. Its been storming all day here in NY I couldn't get outside to photograph. I used the Sterling Silver beads in the chain and I used the Sodalite daggers for dangles. Thank you so much for stopping by and Do visit Hannah and the rest of the participants:
