I've been wracking my brain, trying to decide which of my pieces to post first... so here we go!
This is a set I made, to wear in a friend's wedding. We were each responsible for our jewelry, except for one piece that she purchased for each of us. For me, she bought the earrings, so I took care of the necklace and bracelet.
Her colors were a sort of royal purple color, and pale green (pardon the photo quality... the bracelet photo is closer to true color):
And the bracelet I made to coordinate:
As you can probably tell, the necklace was quite a bit more complicated than the bracelet. All told, I think it took me about 4 hours to string, just because it was kinda tedious. Each of the large "beads" is actually a bunch of little beads put together to look like a single beaded bead. The bracelet was a quickie project - maybe 15 minutes or so. The necklace is made up of Swarovski crystals, glass pinch beads, green adventurine, and 80 3-hole spacer bars. The bracelet is just Swarovski crystals, glass beads, and silver plated spacers.
Here's links to a couple of action shots... don't mind my chubby neck. :p
