The result of being snowed in

| New pieces

Hello friends, yesterday was definitely a day for staying in! As a result of that, I finally finished the necklace I started (Read all about that necklace in this post).  At the rate the snow is falling, I am going to end up creating a lot of new pieces!

I finally went with the lighter green and gold beads to go with the pendant.  I thought that the lighter green made for a nice contrast with the deep bottle green of the pendant.  And I’m quite pleased with its length, it is neither too long or too short.

On the other hand I still wanted to use those dark green glass beads and there was a unfinished piece with Japanese millefiori beads sitting on my desk for the longest time. These Japanese beads date back to the 60s and is very different from the Italian milefiori beads.  It is more delicate in its design.  Something about its delicateness worked quite well with the dark green beads, together with the ribbon clasp, I thought the piece came out looking quite sweet and feminine looking despite its more somber color.
