Recently I was inspired by a tutorial in Beadwork. I usually flip through the magazine, get inspired and file it away with the rest of my jewelry magazines to take out when I'm having a lull of creativity. However, I've been following their Beaded Bead series for their 15th anniversary and this one beaded bead popped off the page at me. I thought what the heck I'd give it a try!
I tried and I like!!!
I created 3 beaded beads for this necklace using the round beads as the inspiration for the color palette. The rounds are black with silver and gold foil accents on them, lending perfectly to gold & silver netting for the beaded beads.
I strung the necklace featuring pewter colored pearls, shiny gold rounds, some black faceted rondelles and a few bold, vintage gold beads for a little more va-voom! The end result is a necklace that is super versatile, comfortable to wear and adds that splash of bling that I think every woman needs!
What's your "Must Have" in a design? Is it a go-to color? Are pearls in nearly all your pieces? I know I bring Swarovski crystal in anywhere and everywhere I can because I really do thing every woman deserves to sparkle! Follow me on Facebook for more inspired sparkles!
Hope your week is inspired!
