So when Artbeads.com declared this months inspiration "Winter Enchantment," I knew right away that I wanted to design a necklace with a cool, winter's night in mind. A Swarovski Cosmic ring and sterling silver disc were layered for the pendant. This represents the moon in all it's glory, you know the nights when it's so bright that it creates a wonderful halo. Swarovski pearls, Swarovski crystals, and sterling silver discs make up the chain of the necklace. Again, the dark midnight sky, twinkling stars, and a wispy cloud here and there. This necklace was such a joy to create. It put me in my happy place and the designed seemed to flow from me. I must admit, upon opening the package, I wasn't sure I had made the right color choices, however now that the necklace is done, I think the colors were right on.
The other thing that I love in the winter is empty beaches. There is almost nobody around, it is possible to take long walks on the beach and not encounter another soul. It's absolutely delightful! Just you alone with your thoughts, miles of sand, and the crashing waves. This bracelet represents just that.
Ivory Czech beads are paired with hand-dyed silk and oxidized copper wire, and the blue porcelain beads add a splash of color.
This is just a few things that add charm to those long winter months. What are you enchanted by?
