Hello friends, I finished a number of pieces and I must say, I’m quite happy with how they turned out.  Remember the sky blue piece from last Monday? Here it is!  I decided to make the silver foil bead into a pendant for this necklace and it hangs perfectly on the decolleté.

I’m fortunate enough to work next to a big window and where I sit, I can see these trees with their gorgeous green colors. They range from deep dark green to a more summery hue.  I was looking through my bead box one day and I came across these vintage Czech glass beads from the 40s and they are the exact color as some of the trees I see outside. I just had to make something with them. And here is what I came up with.

And in keeping with the green theme, I also came up with a bracelet, which is not exactly the same, but to my mind, compliments nicely the necklace.

And while we are on bracelets, I also made a simple bracelet in a vibrant blue shade but the focal bead on this one is really interesting. Its full of little sparkles and looks almost like ice when you hold it up against the light.20140610-182408-66248228.jpg

 

Finally, since it is summer and as such the time for showing off tanned legs, I thought I’d add another anklet to the current collection.  These little rondelle beads are from the late 30s and are harder to come by than the bigger rondelles. I’m quite happy to have a few of them around. 20140610-182409-66249172.jpgEh voila, hope you’ve enjoyed all these new pieces.  As always, if interested in any of them, don’t hesitate to drop me a line!

    Oh my!! All so pretty. I agree that the green necklace and bracelet would work together evenif they are not the same shade. I love how you were inspired by the green you saw from your window! And how wonderful to work beside such a window… Perfect work spot for you. I imagine that blue bead looking like ice against the light. You are so blessed to be working with, and know how to work these beautiful things. Wishing you and us more similarly gorgeous pieces!!
