After the long lazy days of summer, I’m slowly settling into fall. Slowly, but surely getting back to creating some new pieces for upcoming fall shows.
Recently, I’ve been very drawn to this palette of black and gold. It feels very rich and decadent. In my own wardrobe, I tend to different bright colors but it is true that black goes with everything so…
I suppose it helps that while the beads I’ve been using are black, they still have that all important splash of color. These earrings for example, these dangly earrings feature a great pair of Venetian wedding cake beads that feature the adventuring swirl and the pretty pink flowers that are hallmarks of wedding cake beads. They feel festive and fun!
Or have a look at this other pair. This next one is a Venetian fancy trade bead dating back to the 1800s. Yes, you read that right– these are 19th century beads. And they’re in remarkably fine condition too which is rare for these kinds of beads. Usually, the decorative trailings are worn away from long usage.
Both these earrings would go fantastically with this bracelet. This one features a black Moretti bead from the early 1900s with gold leaf.
Of course, the jewelry box wouldn’t be complete without a necklace. And this new one features early 1900s Venetian wedding cake beads and delicate pink satin glass from Bohemia.
All these pieces will soon be available in the eshop!
