|Winter Wonderland Etsy Bead Embroidery Guild Challenge|
To me, winter speaks of simplicity, elegance and a monotone color palette. There are shades of silver and white dancing in snowflakes and sticking to tree branches. But when you look at a landscape as a whole, it's blends together in a monochromatic picture.
I created a necklace that offers the same simple elegance! I call this bead embroidered necklace "The First Snow." The pendant features a sparkly Swarovski flat-back crystal. It's sparkle is completely reminscent of the "diamonds" that sparkle on the first snow of the season. You know when you first look out the window before the dogs go out or the kids tromp through the beautiful, fluffy white snowy carpet. Those little snowflakes that capture the light and sparkle like diamonds.

I kept the necklace simple to really allow the pendant to be the star of the show. Classic pearls and fire-polished crystals bring in the hues of white and silver with that touch of sparkle. I hope you can see my interpretation of a Winter Wonderland. This piece was custom designed for a Christmas gift and the recipient was delighted to have such a special creation.
