Sewing has become my new craft-time, so the jewelry making has fallen by the way-side. This last weekend, however, I did find some time to spend making pretty baubles for my friend's upcoming wedding (MOH in the house!!)
The colors are pink, sage green, and chocolate, so I got an assortment of beads in those colors: round jade briolletes, some elongated faceted smokey quartz, different sizes of pink faceted glass, and of course pearls in pink and chololate (some real, some glass). I just linked them together with some 24g gold filled wire and added a sparkly cluster with a HUGE smokey quartz drop in the center.
Here is the finished project . I finished off the necklace with a couple links of chain so you can extend the length. There's a dangling pearl that hands down the back in a sweetly sexy way.
I'm working on some matching cluster earrings similar to the middle drop, but without the honkin' quartz drop in the center.
