I have been a follower of Erin Prais-Hintz blog for a long time. I love her writing and her wonderful sense of color and her beautiful jewelry. She is such a lovely friend too. Fifty of us took up the challenge of creating a piece of jewelry based on a custom color palette from Jessica Colaluca of Design-Seeds. I chose teal for my palette and this is what Jessica sent me.
Isn't it yummy? I was thinking "teal" would be a deep jewel tone, but, as you can see, this is the pastel alternative.
As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to do. But as I was playing with the beads, I kept thinking, "if is was March, I would call this 'Waiting for Spring', but . . . it is LATE November." Then it came to me, "Visions of Sugar Plums!" Lampwork egg, lampwork hearts, czech glass and crystal beads all wire wrapped on a sterling silver chain. The toggle closure is set with pale teal crystals.
Now go on to Erin's blog Treasures Found to check out the other challenge participants.
