Black Beaded Necklace and Earrings

By on Wednesday, February 25, 2009 4 Comments

Some people find black jewelry too dark and perhaps uninteresting. But it can be brightened by introducing other elements like Laura did with her glass bead necklace and earring set.

The long cigar shaped beads were an unremitting black so she interspersed them with half black and clear round crackle beads, stripped grey and black oval beads and one round faceted focal bead. Less obvious are the silver corrugated beads she added. What she accomplished was a black jewelry set made considerably more interesting with the silver and grey highlights and yet stayed close to the dark colour she prefers.

  3. This is a most attractive set. I thought at first that the focal bead was snowflake obsidian. The set would really enhance a gray or white outfit along with black patent leather accessories. Spring is almost here!
