Saturated with Color

February 10th, 2011

Maybe it’s my solution to that drab time of year, but I’ve been dabbling with saturated color lately. I’ve made two necklaces that fit that description.

Chocolate Cherries


It’s obvious why I call this chocolate cherries. You just want to pluck the rich dark brown smoky quartz nuggets off the strand and pop them in your mouth. The red beads perfectly simulate fresh, ripe, sweet Bing cherries. Yummy! It’s a double strand, so there’s plenty of chocolate cherries to go around.

This is a combination of smoky quartz nuggets,  delicious red glass rounds with just a hint of black swirled in, crystal disco balls, chocolaty tiny hearts, smoky crystal bicones, cinnamon red glass pearls, and antiqued gold spacers.

Blue Moon, Mars, and Saturn

blue-moon-mars-saturnA rather fanciful name for a rather fanciful necklace. I mixed vintage teal blue moon glow beads with cobalt round slices, thus the blue moon and the rings of Saturn.  Beautiful teal, red and blue, oval lampworked beads travel from moon to moon looping along pathways of Siam red and cobalt blue. This necklace is made entirely of glass beads except for the silver plated hook clasp and the crimp covers.
