Spring Colors - Turquoise, Purple & Yellow

I'm so excited to hear that the "it" colors for this spring & summer are turquoise, purple & yellow! I love those colors! I wear turquoise & purple all the time... all year, regardless of the season. So I challenged myself to blend those colors into a piece of jewelry just for me.

So here's what I created~ a 3-strand beaded necklace using beautiful Blue Moon lampwork beads, seed beads from the Bead Smith and gorgeous cut glass amber colored beads. I usually create pieces with intent to sell them, but this piece I designed just for me! We do need to treat ourselves once in a while and this is my treat to me!


I'm in the process of creating a similar, but different necklace to make available in my Etsy store because I think these colors are a dynamite choice for anybody, any age, any skin tone, and so many outfit styles. I'll keep you posted with pics on my latest creation~

Thanks for taking time out of your Monday morning to share a little piece of sunshine from my world. I hope your week is absolutely splendid!

Lucky you...that is beautiful Dawn!!! I do agree, sometimes we need to make something just for ourselves! I don't do that often enough either...what I make is to sell or I make pieces for my daughter, she has more silver than I do... :0)

As you know turquoise & purple are two of my most favorite colors...not a huge fan of yellow but what the heck I can work it in!!!

I'll watch for your next creation!
It is a sunny warm day (for winter)here today...love it!
Cheers

Thanks Heather! This was just one of those inspirations... and sometimes it's these little things that put a little extra bounce in your step!

I actually thought of you as I was uploading this post. I know, you're a die-hard purple gal like I am! I have to say, I've gotten tons of comments on this one!

So glad you had a wonderful trip! Welcome back! Chat with you soon!

That's a great piece...and I love that it's just for you! Thanks for coming by my post today...I just had to comment because I posted yesterday about my purple/turquoise/yellow take and it's completely different than yours. I just love that we can all take a simple color inspiration and do such cool things!!
