Red crystal necklace

Red is such a versatile color isn't it ? It just seems like everyone has at least one dress with red as a dominant color in it. In the same manner it seems to me that red crystal beads, or really just about any red beads always look beautiful. They match with a variety of beads and are great to use on their own or in combination with other colors.

This time I used red crystal in a very different kind of necklace when compared to the ones I have made in the past. This one has smaller beads on the top and larger beads hanging between the smaller beads. I have also used small copper and gold colored beads to add some slightly different shades to the necklace.

Fuschia and Purple Earrings and Bracelet set

Usually fuschia (or bright rose pink ? ) is not a color I use very often, but from time to time I find some beads that I cannot wait to use. These fuschia beads that I used in this bracelet and earring set have always been one of my favorites. They are such a cute and lovely color. Since I had some leftover from the previous project, I decided to use them up. This time in combination with some purple crystal beads that I got recently.

I thought this combination worked really well. I made a very simple combination with some small dainty daisy spacers between beads. The bracelet is a stretch kind bracelet so there is no need to fiddle with a clasp, it can be just slipped on :)

Green jade and golden crystal necklace and bracelet watch set

My mother in law has this beautiful dark bottle green sari that she wears often and I wanted to make a necklace to match the sari. After a little bit of search, I finally found some nice dark jade beads that I thought would look good  in a necklace. Since the sari which was kind of like an inspiration piece, had the shades of gold and green, I went with the same colors for the necklace.

The necklace is a very simple and elegant design, and once it was ready I decided to make a matching bracelet watch to go with it. Since my mother in law did not want anything with hooks etc, and wanted to just be able to slip on the watch I used a nice elastic stretch cord to make the bracelet and it worked out so well. Makes it real easy to slip it on and off :)
