New Necklaces Desert Bloom
There is a lot happening on my bench; a steady progress in production, working out designs, making photos, sketching, doodling ideas. All happening just as it comes. And in the middle of my creative chaos things get finished and slowly a new collection is growing. Honestly it does amaze me- sometimes (in the middle of the night when i am too tired to work but cant sleep) I just look at the pieces and slyly smile before packing them away again. Oh, but hush, don't tell anyone!
There is one piece that doesn't make me smile much- no rather has left me at first a bit desperate, then baffled. Remember the 'lily of the nile' pendant? I did find faceted amethyst- but only 8mm. What I really wanted was 4mm faceted amethyst. I did get the 8mm beads, but not sure if they aren't too big.
What do you think? The photo 1 shows the 8mm amethyst beads,while photo 2 sports 4mm smoky quartz beads.
Which got me thinking - maybe I should ditch the amethyst idea and just get beautifully coloured 4mm faceted beads- in a different semiprecious stone
