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.

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!

Week 4: Adalya Amethyst Earrings

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Sorry for the delay…It has been a busy week. This week’s color focus is purple: “purple symbolizes kingship, majesty, royalty and reigning with Christ in heavenly places” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). Natural stones in various colors are used throughout the Bible for decorative purposes. Specifically, amethyst is mentioned in Exodus 28:19 and 39:12 as being a part of the design of the breastpiece. It is also mentioned in Revelation 21:20 as a part of the decoration of the city walls of the New Jerusalem. What a beautiful place heaven will be! Week after week, I am reminded to reflect on God’s Word through the little things that are all around us, be it a piece of jewelry or a beautiful color in nature.

When I picked the color this week, I was not sure what I was going to create. I know I had this beautiful amethyst that I wanted to use. I said a little prayer for direction and started designing. Each component of these earrings is handcrafted from the jump rings to the ear wires. I give God all the credit for the design. These earrings measure approximately 3 inches. Each amethyst measures approximately 1 ¼ inch. One available.
