Opening Night on Broadway - A Performance in Black and White

A journey blending opposing colors in an elegant jewelry design! 

Black & White
Yin & Yang
Darkness & Light
Off & On

As she sashays down the winding staircase, her heels click, click, click on the marble.  Her hand glides down the bannister and at last, she appears.  The woman of the night is here.  All heads turn, the room gets quiet.  Her sheer presence commands respect. 

She's a vision adorned in black lace.  Pearls dangle from her ears and drape softly around her neck.  And on her wrist, she models an exclusive work of art.  Custom crafted beadwork all in black.  Accents in Swarovski crystal and pearls.  Women whisper, "I wonder where she got it?"  "I've never seen something so unique."  "That's so perfect for her!" 

The men smile ever so slightly, they know they'll be commissioning one-of-a-kind art for their wives too.  Maybe for a birthday, maybe for an anniversary.  A romantic dinner, flowers and the gift of jewelry will surprise her on a Tuesday night.  One thing is certain, you can win her heart with love and jewelry.


I want to thank Sally Russick for inspiring a group of creative souls to design in Black & White for this amazing challenge.  You can visit Sally and see the other incredible creations for this Black & White Challenge on Sally's blog - The Studio Sublime

I can only admire seed beaders. I do NOT have the patience or dexterity to work with them so seeing what y'all can do is just amazing. Beautiful job.

Oh Dawn, when I saw that you were on the participant list for this challenge I could not wait to see what gorgeousness you were going to create, you did not disappoint, if ever you could. I love the cuff! Using the matte black seed beads gives just the right contrast with the shinny white cabs, beads and crystals.
