100 Day Challenge: Day 92. Red pearl necklace.

As promised, I made a necklace with the same pearls as yesterday’s earrings.  I actually bought these pearls years ago for a project I was working on at the time, doing necklaces with a cluster of pearls in the front, themed around desserts.  They’ve long-since sold, but I had these left over.  I love red, and love how this turned out.

100 Day Challenge: Day 81. Aventurine and agate bracelet.

In yesterday’s bracelet, I used two different types of aventurine.  This time, I’m using more of the large, dark peach aventurine beads, and using an agate bead as the focal.  I have no idea what kind of agate this is, but it has great purple, peach, and white splotching on it, and makes me think of clouds at sunset.  I think the pairing goes fantastic together.  How about you?

100 Day Challenge: Day 3

After making the magnesite necklace from yesterday, I had some beads left over.  Today I used those up and had enough to make a bracelet as well as a pair of earrings.  For the bracelet, I went with a magnetic clasp, since toggles are cute but can be hard to do up by yourself.  The earrings are trios of the turquoise-coloured magnesite, attached to a series of small rings.  The effect is that they hang in graduated heights, much like these pearl earrings (same design, different beads).

Also, the photo isn’t the greatest.  This is why it’s not ideal to shoot in extremely bright sunshine – the shadows can be distracting and the colour isn’t quite right.  Still, imagine the soft turquoise and creamy white of the necklace, and you’ll get the idea.  🙂
