Pink-N-Pearls - a new vintage inspired necklace !

Here`s my new project - An intricate classic necklace crafted with luminous freshwater pearls, and dusky pink netted beads .




While not exactly pink , these Indian glass beads are more a variation of the Pantone color of the year `Marsala` . It was quite refreshing to use both bead weaving and wire wrapping techniques to assemble this necklace. It`s turned out quite well I think and will be one of my favorites for formal occasions

So what do you think?

The Beads have arrived!

     


          Waiting excitedly and with a wee bit of impatience , the goody bag of beads has finally arrived from my partner  Jami Shipp , for the  Bead Peeps "Swap n Hop" challenge . Being the first time that I`m participating in such a challenge , I`ve been hyper about everything to do with it , from getting to know my partner , to posting my goodies for her , as well as getting goodies and the jewellery ready before the deadline. I think I`ve bugged her in this excitement and driven her nuts especially since she has not been keeping well. Sorry for that Jami !
  Anyways, once I got the goody bag  , I`m thrilled at what she sent me . A lovely Jasper cab that has been cut by her friend , a copper clasp made by her , and seed beads in different sizes.


 Here are the pictures of what I sent her . A variety of beads in different materials  , finding , focals  and a beaded tassel that I made a couple of years ago . The photos are not very good ones though as I took these at the last minute, all wrapped in plastic bags , before shipping at the Post office, as an after thought .

 I hope she likes them and has as much in using them , as I had in gathering them for her . Just can`t wait to see what she makes from these .

Do drop by at the reveal date to see some beautiful eye candy !
