A Bit of Summer

October 20th, 2009 · 2 Comments


Just like in the background of the picture I wanted a lush green background to the necklace. To achieve this look, I braided three strands of the Green Spider Jasper Cubes. I attached the druk beads to the filigree to represent the unopened blooms peeking out from the leaves. With a blast of big bold color, the double strands lead you eye to that beautiful ripple pendant, just like the pedals lead your eye to the center of the flower. That is my inspiration and my bit of summer to take with me into winter.

Here are the ArtBeads products I used:
Donut Rust Ripple – Product Code: SBRB4
Green Spider Jasper Cubes – Product Code: 48760
Rainbow Carnelian Squares – Product Code: LTD-1447
Glass Druk Bead Topaz 8mm (25 Pack) – Product Code: DRUK-TOPA8
