I'm absolutely over the moon about this necklace (so is my baby sister). It turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I LOVE the color combination, so cheerful. This is my first go round with felt beads. I've always admired them in projects and wanted to give it a try for myself. I love the texture of them, they are so light weight, and available in a variety of colors and sizes. The square washers were a must have...available in lots of colors and work great for creating an adjustable length lariat. Of course, I had to have one of the new Swarovski Innovations, I used it as well as a couple of Czech flowers on the tassel. The end result...a fabulous necklace with an array of colorful beads and sterling silver wirework. And a favorite! Still up in the air...this one might be a keeper...hum?
Bursting Blooms ~ Colorful Sterling Silver Necklace
Oh and I even made mismatched, matching earrings
When I saw these Swarovski "Wing" beads, right away the wheels started turning...how can I use these to create a butterfly? After all, spring is when the butterflies reappear and I think they are so beautiful. This is a pendant, just haven't decided on the necklace part yet.
Finally, these Swarovski Innovations were chosen because of the shape and the color. They are such a beautiful shade of blue and you can't really tell from the picture but the dangles are a very faint color of blue as well. Spring is known for being rainy...do you see it? Rain falling from dark skies.
