Sometimes beaders start with one piece and when they are on a roll, like Natalie, they keep going!

Natalie started with the pendant. As she prefers the simplicity of contemporary design, she put just three square grey mother of pearl beads in a row separated with clear seed beads. The little wire squiggle was an afterthought.

Then she progressed to making her bracelet and once that was complete, she had to have the earrings to match to complete her set.

A lot of artisan jewelry particularly wire worked pieces are amazingly intricate and ornate. But let's not forget people like Natalie who favor contemporary styles which calls for uncluttered, simple lines in neutral colours.
