Tangerine Statement Necklace

Wire-wrapped glass, tangerine cube beads and deep turquoise glass seed beads make a bold statement in this necklace. This necklace measures 21 inches in length and comes with matching tangerine earrings. This necklace was created out of sheer curiosity of wire-wrapping the cubed beads… “What would happen if?”… So, I just started playing and this is the result. I loved the way the bluish-green seed beads looked with it so I added four strands on each side. This necklace will be perfect for a night out or some other event where bold jewelry is appropriate.   

Playful in Pink

This necklace is inspired by J.Crew’s spring jewelry; specifically, their blooming bead pendant necklace: http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/jewelry/necklaces/PRDOVR~74442/74442.jsp.  I loved the beads in the middle of the chain. I decided to try it and voila, this playful statement necklace was created. I used aluminum chain, glass seed beads, glass crystals, shell & resin. I off-centered the pink crystals for a little playfulness and added a large shell and resin bauble for fun. You can’t help but feel happy in this necklace!
