Neutral jewelry designs

By on Thursday, November 05, 2009 4 Comments

Yvonne was certainly in a neutral kind of mood for this workshop session. She picked some gorgeous irregular mother of pearl dagger beads and came up with the necklace design. Notice that she spaced them out with dark bronze seed beads. She then used extra long bronze bugle beads for the rest of the necklace. As the dagger beads were too large for earrings, she used glass dagger beads instead to complete this simple but bold design.



Yvonne chose a silver metal bead from Debbie's (my co-instructor and friend) collection and designed a long two stage pendant for a silver chain she already had. The only color used were the small faceted round glass beads in a muted purple shade. Rather slimming design, I might add!

  1. I think bugle beads are underappreciated in the bead world. I like both of these designs a lot. Really pretty!
