Many jewelry artisans concentrate on just silver jewelry. True, silver is much more popular than gold. However, we shouldn't neglect the group of people who do like gold. Consider them a niche market!

Gold can be very pretty as you can see from Noreen's luxurious looking set. She is one grown-up besides young Katie (see previous beader design) who saw the potential of mixing metallic colours.

She used large deep red glass beads with light copper swirls and mixed those with smaller red beads of different shapes and sizes. Then she threw in matte gold seed beads, faceted pale gold round beads, smooth round coppery glass beads and even cylindrical gold spectra beads (on earrings). The result is a rich design indeed.
