Okay so now that the creative juices are flowing...i have made a belated birthday gift for a friend. a pair of earrings that are just super cute. I used gold filled chain bought at the craft store, and beautiful chunky dark smokey topaz acrylic beads which i found on ebay. Crystal pearls in an olive color also bought at craft store with gold tone hypo-allergenic surgical steel ear wires.
I wanted something flirty and that could go from end of summer right into winter. The dark smokey topaz was just the right shade of sexy. The olive pearl adds earthiness and softness to the facets of the topaz and the hard edge of the chain.
Still experimenting with new scanner so sorry about the fuzz in some places. And it also made the earwires look silver on the end when they are gold. I'm just very happy with these earrings. i 'd love to add them to my Artfire store. Gonna do another pair in silver. I've got deep emerald green chunky beads which would look great for the holidays. Also very sheer lavender which are so nice. I am hereby inspired. Now to create a bracelet to match...hmmm
