Artbeads Summertime Blogging Fun!

Making jewelry + gardening = fun in the summertime! That's why I chose pendants featuring floral motifs for the Artbeads.com summertime blogging fun. I also chose Swarovski crystal glass pearls in coral and brown, wire-wrapped them alternately in copper and brown wire and linked them together with brass chain. I added a clasp that has the same shape as the focal.


I added some Swarovski crystal margarita's to add a bit of sparkle and made a pair of coordinating earrings.


For the second set I picked out a Lilly Pilly shell pendant appropriately named 'Blue Bouquet.' I strung two strands of vintage blue beads and added some leftover crystal pearls onto silver rectangle links. Using brown silk ribbon for a tie, makes this necklace light and airy. Great with demin and a white T!
